Matthew 16:26 -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 cost of a Soul? This is the question that Jesus has put to all that are created in His Fathers Image. The soul in all of us is made in the image of God. Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Our physical bodies are only earthly tents that will one day perish when we die, but the real you and I are "spiritual beings" who were created in God's image. Our soul will live forever.
In Matthew 16:26 Jesus reveals in this text that it is possible to lose our soul. Simply put, if we or those we love should die apart from a personal relationship with God, our souls will be lost eternally. Ironically, Jesus explained in Matthew 16:24-25 that to find our soul we must deny ourselves.
Join us this Sunday as we count the cost of being a disciple of Jesus Christ! ... See MoreSee Less
