100.  That the grace of God ought to be without price.

In the Acts of the Apostles: “Thy money be in perdition with thyself, because thou hast 555thought that the grace of God is possessed by money.”45904590    Acts viii. 20. Also in the Gospel:  “Freely ye have received, freely give.”45914591    Matt. x. 8. Also in the same place:  “Ye have made my Father’s house a house of merchandise; and ye have made the house of prayer a den of thieves.”45924592    Matt. xxi. 13. The latter clause of this quotation is omitted by the Oxford editor. Also in Isaiah: “Ye who thirst, go to the water, and as many as have not money: go, and buy, and drink without money.”45934593    Isa. lv. 1. Also in the Apocalypse: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that thirsteth from the fountain of the water of life freely. He who shall overcome shall possess these things, and their inheritance; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”45944594    Rev. xxi. 6, 7.
