Recently a house plant in New Zealand was sold for a record amount. It is hard to believe but in an online auction bidding war a house plant sold for 19,200 US dollars. Apparently in New Zealand house plants have increased in value and have become very popular to sell online over the past couple of years. Who could ever imagine a house plant could be worth almost twenty thousand US dollars? Something that is of infinite worth that has not changed the price of purchase over the years has to do with being able to experience salvation. The reason the price has not changed is that it is a gift, you cannot buy it. You can only experience it through faith in Jesus Christ. In the Bible in Ephesians 2:8-9 it reads, “8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
