What is the value of your soul? Gold is ‘about’ $1,700 per ounce; a dollar about 1 to 1 Euros; an American home about $200,000; a wedding ring about $5,000; giving birth around $15,000; a funeral is about $10,000; an auto is about $35,000.
Jesus: what shall it profit if one gains the whole world & loses their own soul?
“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16
Jesus Saves! Repent, believe, receive, confess, put your faith in Jesus who died on the cross to save your soul. Share Jesus with others.
A trail of martyrs blood flows throughout the history of the preaching of the cross that souls get saved.
Why do we need to be saved… because of the value of a person is to God. Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost.
I have spent a lifetime seeking to lead people to Jesus that they could be saved. Some may consider my life at many different levels. Schools attended, degrees, all kinds of accomplishments, but only one thing that I have done that has made the headline news in heaven with explosive joy and praise has been to share the message of Jesus and the cross so that one lost person would get saved. One, even if it was only one you helped leads then to Jesus then your life has had eternal value and fulfilled the plan of God.
The Blood of Jesus shed on the cross is enough to wash away the sins of the most wicked person that ever lived. The Blood of Jesus shall never lose its Power!
Sin kills but Jesus Saves!
Store up treasures in heaven!
Rich man and Lazarus. Jesus tell us about this in Luke 16:19-31
“There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
“Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’
“Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’ ”
Many people do not believe in seeking to convert people to receive Jesus. But the moment you die you will be wanting some one to go to your family and friends and share Jesus with them so that they will not go to hell, the place of torment for all eternity.
God loves you and sent Jesus to the cross for our sins and for the Holy Spirit to convict us of our sins that we could be saved. I plead with you to come to Jesus right now and be saved. Heaven will rejoice and Jesus will be with you now and when you die He will welcome you into heaven for all eternity.
