Don't Lose Your Soul
For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?
- Luke 9:25
There are many questions in life that one can ask and get wrong, without suffering any dramatic consequence. The question proposed by Luke is not one of these questions, in fact it is a question with an eternal consequence.
Do we pursue everything this world has to offer or do we give our lives to know and love Jesus?
Luke is making the clear emphasis that we do not gain anything of any eternal value by gaining the world. He is emphatically stating that if we only pursue worldly gain this will consume our soul.
In Jesus we have far more peace, joy, fulfilment and love than anything this world has to offer. Give yourself to know him more, love him more, trust him more and you will find your soul eternally satisfied!
