Freely you have received, freely give. – Matthew 10:8
I’m amazed at all You’ve done for me, Who am I that You’d bless me so —
I stand in awe of all Your wondrous deeds You’ve dealt with me so graciously.
The words of this song touch my heart. They remind me of God’s love for me, demonstrated in the ultimate sacrifice of Christ’s death for my salvation. Nothing I could do or say could ever pay the debt I owe to God for my sin. God knew His gracious gift of His Son, Jesus, was the only way for me to live. It is truly amazing!
Although God has given His children many gifts — both spiritual and material — we did not deserve them and should not selfishly hoard them. When Jesus told His disciples to go out and freely give, He was specifically referring to the spiritual gifts they had received — to preach, teach and heal in Jesus’ name. They were called by Jesus to freely give and share these gifts with the lost people they encountered.
The command for us is no less. We should not selfishly claim the spiritual or material gifts God has so freely given us. Jesus calls each of us to examine our hearts and realize the amazing sacrifice of Jesus and the awesome gifts God has freely given us. Our response can be none other than to willingly give of all that we have and are. God did not limit His love and gifts to us. We, therefore, cannot place limits on our giving.
