The value of a soul

In this classic sermon from the Washington Convention Center, Billy Graham examines the great worth God places on human souls. Jesus said that your soul is worth more than the rest of the world put together. He asked, “What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” (Mark 8:36)

Most at times we forget to feed our souls with the rich nutrients and vitamins which is the ‘Word of God and prayer’. The constant reading of the Bible and communing with God makes the soul strong and healthy. It gives way for the Holy Spirit to dwell in you, teaching you to obey and leads you to the right path.

Anyone with the Spirit of God dwelling inside him has passed judgment to life. He will not see judgement because the Spirit of God dwells in him. The Spirit of God is the strength of God. What will it take for you to deny this body it’s desires to focus on your soul for eternal salvation? Are you scared you will lose everything you have, be laughed at, ejected by family and friends, insulted, look the Bible says in Matthew 5:3-12

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

What will you gain if you have all the richest, fame, beauty, attention and respect in this world for this body and lose your soul? Some go to the extent of selling their souls to the devil just for perishable things and at the end suffer eternally. Most people do not know or they forget that the soul is the one living eternally. This body only lives for a short while.

The value of your soul is determined after your death. Where you will go after death, heaven or hell lies your own hands. The choice is yours to make. Make a good choice now and you will enjoy forever and ever but make a bad choice now and your soul will suffer in the lake of fire forever and ever.

Everyday is an opportunity and a second chance for you to repent from your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal saviour. Read your Bible everyday, live a righteous life, be baptised with the Holy Spirit and gain eternal life.
