Things That He Freely Gives
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. – 1 Corinthians 2:14
In the Assembly of God churches (no offense to these wonderful people), I was thought that God only saves us from Hell, that sometimes God healed and took us out of lack, but that we couldn’t count on that. It seemed, to me, that everything you received from God had to be earned.
I now know that God freely gives us all things that pertain to life (the physical realm) and godliness (the spiritual realm), according to 2 Peter 1:3.
In both verses God states that He has given us freely given us things.
What do these things include?
They include the rescue from Hell, yes, but they include everything that Jesus died to give us. That includes healing (I Peter 2:24), prosperity (II Corinthians 8:9), peace (John 14:27) and everything that pertains to life and godliness.
Every gift from God is freely given to us. We don’t have to earn them otherwise they wouldn’t be gifts.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
