Heaven Can Be Bought

AUGUST 14, 2023
Daily Reading – Psa. 48-51 / Rom. 6


Psalm 49:6-7 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:



        MONEY! That stuff that everyone wants more of. Oh, I know, there are some who say, “I really do not care if I have money or not.” But then offer them a hundred-dollar bill with no strings attached and see how fast they scarf it up. Every preacher knows that the church needs money to function. To pay the bills, to support missions, and to purchase supplies. Every Missionary knows they need money to get to the field God has called them to. Most often when they get there, they see the needs of the people they are called to minister to and ask others to consider helping with additional finances to aid in that work. We have been led to believe that having a desire for more money is almost sinful, greedy, or against the will of God. However, it is not the need or desire that is sinful. It is when that desire becomes your driving force, consuming your thoughts. When money, and not God, become the center of your life, that is when it becomes sinful. 


        In Psalm 49 there is a warning, not against having wealth, but against worshiping and trusting in it. Money is not evil. It is the love of money that is evil. You can do a lot of good things with added finances. Yet, as our text says, you cannot buy someone’s entrance into heaven with it. Still, Heaven can be bought! In fact, it was bought by the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus, on the cross of Calvary. Heaven can be bought, with the right currency. The blood of Jesus Christ. 



        In 1 Peter 1:18-19 it says, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold… 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”


Do you have a home money cannot buy?
