Learning to Receive

“Thanks, but no thanks!”

Years ago when we arrived here with our moving truck, what if we had told those who came to help, “Thanks, but you can all go on home. We’re going to unload it all ourselves”?

What are some advantages of receiving? 1) It gives others an opportunity to serve. 2) It keeps us humble. 3) It doesn’t pay to be too independent.


“Lord, help me!”

When you think about it, salvation is not a do-it-yourself project. “For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6).

At “the right time” He died.

Have you received yet what He died to give you (Acts 2:36-38, 41; Titus 3:5)? If not, isn’t it “the right time”?
