What Profits A Man If He Gains The Whole World But Loses His Own Soul?


Job Said It, This Way, Naked I came Into The World, And, Naked I will Leave It!!!



For those of us who are Christian, it is important to stop and reflect on what being Christian really means. Today many billion people classify themselves as Christians but do most of us really dedicate ourselves to living Christian lives? The answer is clearly no. The world that we live in is full of distractions and pleasures that pull us away from spiritual life. Even our jobs which are a very necessary and important part of our lives can end up being the altar at which we pray. They consume most of our waking hours and provide the income on which we are dependent in order to take care of our families.


We spend more time at ball games, fishing, golfing, cinemas, theaters, art galleries and theme parks than we do with Jesus Christ and, His Believers, and they have become our new gods and, cathedrals. We can spend hours at any of these places of entertainment but if spiritual fellowship goes on too long we get impatient. We love to listen to music and to dance the night away much more often than singing hymns to our Lord. We pay more to watch a football, basketball or baseball game than we leave in helping, supporting ministries like this one.


We care more about money, honors, fame, glory, recognition, entertainment, physical gratification and a myriad of other things than we do about enlightenment, spirituality, and peace in our lives. Yet even when we are satiated with the good things in life we often find ourselves feeling empty. Something seems to be missing.


Many people turn to yoga, gurus, “feel-good” seminars legitimately looking for ways to fill the empty void in their lives. Others turn to alcohol, drugs, or prostitutes in their search for ways to either deaden the pain or find a source of intimacy that is missing, even in religious services.


Yet none of the above will provide the sense of peace for which we are all searching. Only a connection to God can provide that ultimate peace. And for Christ Jesus Believers, our path to God is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. His resurrection is what we will celebrate tonight when we light our candles. And through His resurrection, we have been given the hope of salvation.


It is important for those of us who are God's sons and daughters, Christ Lovers, and His Followers to remember that our physical lives don’t last forever. Our souls will last an eternity, and thus we should place even more emphasis on the health of our souls than the health of our bodies. The later is important to nourish but our souls also need nourishment, and that nourishment is love. We need to love and be loved by others. And since God is love He is the ultimate source of nourishment for our souls.


A hundred years from now very few of us will be remembered by anybody living at that time. So if we focus all our attention on the successes of this world what will it have gained for us. When we die our money, fame, and honors will be meaningless. We own nothing in this world. Everything we think we own is in reality only being loaned to us until we die. And on our deathbed at the moment of death, no one but God can save our souls.


The joyful sons and His daughters I have ever seen are oftentimes those Christ Believers, Lovers, Followers who have very little in the way of material comforts or public recognition. They were my spiritual brothers and sisters in the Lord, I met ar the store, the shopping mall, in the hood in parkin loving Christian fellowships who had given up everything in order to follow Christ. They had a sense of community and fellowship.


On the other end of the spectrum were the billionaires, famous actors, and elected officials that I met throughout the years. They clearly loved their work and excelled at it. They had achieved the spoils of this world but yet most of them were not at peace nor were they joyful. So answer yourselves this is everything that you are doing, working for and having, is it worth your one little soul?.
