KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 16:26 KJV “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
What is the soul of a man? The soul of a man in the light of our discussions is the immortal spiritual entity in a man. It is the real person that lives on into eternity when the physical man dies or expires.
The soul of a man is more precious, valuable and expensive than all physical things or wealth combined. Every physical thing, buildings, cars, planes and what have you are all products of the dust. It is actually dust and would end up on the dung hill. Your soul is not physical or from the dust. The Lord asked, what shall it profit a man, if he gains all the wealth in this life and loses his soul? How is a soul lost.? When that soul is not subjected to the Lordship of Jesus. The soul is lost if it is not born from above by the spirit of God. It is lost when that individual places or prices carnal physical things above the place of Christ in his life.
Many people have not come to this understanding, and have sold out their souls to the devil and gone for fame, money, lust and many more. Satan cares less about giving you anything in exchange for your soul. He knows those things have no eternal value, but your soul does. He knows the value of your soul. The value of a thing is the price paid to purchase it. The Lord Jesus shed his blood to pay for your soul. The price of your soul is the life of Jesus.
Do not let the sacrifice of Jesus go waste. Make God’s investment for your soul become beneficial to you, and to God. Now if you refuse and still tread on the path of rebellion and disobedience, WOULD GOD BE RIGHT TO PUT YOUR SOUL IN HELL FIRE?
. This is the worst thing that a man could do to himself. Repent from your ways and make Jesus Lord of your life.
Dear Heavenly Father forgive me for my stubbornness. I repent from every rebellion and accept the Lordship of Jesus. Save my soul from Hell.
