Lose the World and Gain Your SoulPosted on June 24th, 2014.
It’s time we realize that there is no true life outside of Jesus Christ.
“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:24-26
The great exchange of Christianity is this: you trade in all that this world holds dear, and you gain your soul. If you seek the things of this world, you will never know true life in Christ. Jesus made a promise in Matthew 16. He says, “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
God’s world is eternal. When you forsake this world to follow Jesus, you’re signing up for eternal reward that cannot compare to temporary pleasures.
Lose the world. Gain your soul.
