Have you ever noticed that some people will do anything for something that is free?
Today, Caribou Coffee is offering free Coolers from 1-3 p.m. only. I’m told that the lines are huge. People will wait in line for 30-45 minutes just to get a free coffee drink. I wonder how many people would rush to my office if I were to send out a mass e-mail that said, “Free Raisins In My Office from 1-3 p.m. only.” Probably not many, but I’m sure I’d get at least ten.
Oh, that people would rush to experience the free gift that God gives.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
