Mark 8:36 - For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?
SOUL=psuché in the greek and means the vital breath, breath of life, (b) the human soul, (c) the soul as the seat of affections and will, (d) the self, (e) a human person, an individual.
SPIRIT=pneuma in the greek and means wind, breath, spirit.
What is the price you have placed on your soul? What have you exchanged your soul for?
Our soul is worth more than anything else in the world. It is our souls that will live on forever.
Daniel 12:2-Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, but others to shame and everlasting contempt.
Do not be deceived by the enemy of your mind into thinking that your "SOUL" does not matter because it does. Our soul is the part of us that WILL live forever.
The spirit of man does not cease when our fleshly bodies pass away in death. Our souls will live forever, either in the presence of God in heaven if we are saved, or in punishment in hell apart from God if we reject God’s gift of salvation.
Proof of the soul of man (conscience) living on forever is seen in the story that Jesus told about a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus after the man transitioned from earth to eternity.
Let's listen to one of the man's response after his arrival in eternity in Luke 16:22-24- In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’
One of the most painful thing is to see people we love and care about turn away from Christ by rejection of Him and acceptance of any and every temporary thing this world has to offer.
Many people today have purposed in their hearts to SELL their souls to things of this world and the people in it too who are of no benefit to the eternal destination of their souls.
Trust me, NOTHING in this world or on this earth is worth your soul!
I would rather die believing God and find out that heaven is not real than to die apart from the knowledge and truth of God and find out that hell is real for it will be all to late to repent and turn to God then.
If you read the entire story of Luke 16, you will see in God's word that hell is a real place. If you read John 14, you will also see that heaven is a real place. Can't grasp that? Remember, scripture declares that some things can only be discerned through the Holy Spirit and this is one of them.
I plea with you on today to sell your soul to Christ and not people and things of this world. In eternity, you will not regret making this decision.
God's Word is true. Every bit of it!
God Himself declares this concerning His Word in Matthew 5:18-I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth pass away not the smallest letter or stroke of a letter will pass from the law until everything takes place.
Jesus came to earth to save our souls by the shedding His blood on our behalf. He was mocked, beaten, lied on, rejected, whipped, spat on and died so that your and my "SOUL" can live on in eternity with God and not apart from Him.
As the Apostle Paul said to the Corinthian church, I say to you all on today this same verse of scripture that is found in 1 Corinthians 15:3-For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.
If you are lost, what shall it profit you if you gain the whole world and miss Heaven? If you gain all the fun, all the applause of men, all the money and pleasures of this world, and miss Heaven, and go to Hell, and miss being saved by faith through Christ Jesus, your living would be in vain.
There are some things that can not be seen but in the spirit. If you are blinded to spiritual truth, pray and ask God to save you from yourself for it is only then will your spiritual eyes be opened to the the truth of the Gospel.
2 Corinthians 2:14-But people who aren't spiritual can't receive these truths from God's Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can't understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.
2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by believing and not by seeing.
What is the price you are willing to pay for your soul?
