Why does Christ tell us to buy from him gold, white clothing and eye salve?

Can't we simply pray and ask him for these things?How can we buy anything from Christ? Isn't the general idea to freely give what we have freely received?

Revelation 3:18

ESV - 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.
