Pay It Forward

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭10:8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

We got Joyed the other day.

We were in line at McDonald’s and as we got to the window to pay, the cashier told us that the woman in front of us had paid for our order.

What joy?!

So, I was spurred on to pay for the car behind me.

That’s the simplicity of God’s Kingdom.

Only, Jesus paid for everything.

He gave all things into our hands, freely, and now-

We give.

The only hiccup that day, would have been if I argued that I didn’t believe it and kept trying to pay, again, for my order.

We can’t give, what we don’t receive.

Freely.

The disciples didn’t do anything to earn this authority, anymore than the kids and I did anything to deserve or earn our order paid.

It was a gift.

I want to encourage you today to freely receive of the Kingdom and then do as Jesus said, and freely Give!
