Salvation Is A Gift Of God

The Gospel Is Not For Sale
For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know,
nor a cloke of covetousness; God  is witness: Nor of men
 sought  we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others.
1 Thess. 2:5, 6a.

The Gospel will stand on its own; it needs no selling gimmicks!
Paul never witnessed to satisfy approbation lust, nor did he use
 the Gospel to raise money. This is what is meant by the phrase
"nor a cloke of covetousness". From this statement emerges an
important principle: never knowingly accept money from un-
believers for the Lord's work!
HOPE begins in the dark, the stubborn HOPE that if you
just show up and try do the right things, the dawn will come.
You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.
Anne Lamott
