Silver and gold can’t deliver

Neither their silver nor their gold

shall be able to deliver them

on the day of the wrath of the LORD.

Zephaniah 1:18 is pretty clear….our money, our prized possessions, will do us no good when we stand before the Lord on that day. I was reminded of the lame man begging at the gate in Jerusalem when Peter and John came by. He thought he needed money.

“I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”

What we need is healing. Healing from our spiritual lameness.
