“When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money”
Spectators are everywhere but some are wanting to be on the pitch.
Whatever Simon saw it moved him to offer money and we will find out that the money had strings attached to it!
Simon saw a demonstration that eclipsed all his deception he had performed on the people.
There are spectators who want to receive but there are those who want to give not because of compassion but of power.
Temptation is not only outside of the church, it exists from within. Simon wasn’t stirred with a desire to receive what the Spirit was doing. No he had other desires. Desires of power. He wanted to be in the pitch. He saw and wanted what he saw.
