Psa 72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
Psa 72:12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
Psa 72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
Psa 72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.


We don’t know how poor we really are. We have enough to eat, we have a roof, we have plenty to wear, we have extra to buy the things we want. But we are so very poor. We have NOTHING with which to buy a passage into heaven. We have NOTHING to take with us to heaven. We have NOTHING. We are exceedingly poor. All our diamonds are just coal.

But our King shall deliver the needy and the poor. In Christ we are as rich as ever we need to be. With His blood we have all the heavenly riches we need to buy that passage into heaven.

But, here and now, we haven’t a penny to buy that blood with. I don’t care how hard we work, or how much we save, or with what skill we manage our finances, we will still not have even a fraction of the price needed to buy the blood that gets us through the gates of heaven. Praise God the blood is free!!! Free! And there is no use trying to buy it. It is not for sale. It is Free. Free as only the King can make it.
