Christ gave freely of everything He had, up to and including His life.  As Christians we’re simply asked to do the same.  Yet, many who know of God’s goodness and grace through a personal relationship with Jesus simply will not share the gift with others.  Such action (or inaction) shows the believer’s heart for what it truly is–selfish.  The selfishness is fueled by pride, the one thing our Lord needs us to get over before He can use us for even the smallest thing.  Pride has no business in the believer’s heart.  Ask the Lord to cleanse it and He’ll use you to cleanse others before you know it.

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 10:8)

In Christ,
