Acts 8:20-25

"20Peter answered: "May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money!

21You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God.

22Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord. Perhaps he will forgive you for having such a thought in your heart.

23For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin."

24Then Simon answered, "Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me."

25When they had testified and proclaimed the word of the Lord, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages."

Simon's misunderstanding
You cannot buy the Holy Spirit!!!
You cannot buy the most valuable gift God has
freely given to humanity!!!

You cannot buy your way to heaven!!!

You cannot because God loves us so much he simply wants to give the Holy Spirit to us with no strings attached!!! He allowed His only beloved Son to die for you & me. God desperately wants ALL of his creation to hear the Good News, believe it, to repent from past sins, to be baptized, and to walk in His ways.
