Money or influence will not save you. Position or power will not save you. This mindset is where the church should not and will not be influenced or controlled by selfish desires or self-righteous arrogance.
We cannot purchase the power of God as Simon tired. God has already purchased us for a price.
He cannot be controlled. He controls the universe and all in it.
You might conclude that there was no place for Simon in the Kingdom of God or that he was unusable, but neither of those conclusions would be true. There was a place for Simon, but he chose to make his own place. And Simon was only unusable for the moment.
Have you ever felt like you were unusable? Well you are useable. It’s up to you to be careful of what the desires of your heart are focused on.
Be aware of what your heart desires.
