What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?
Some of you think life down here on earth is all there is to life. Just living on and on down here on earth, then it happens, you die! Then you find there’s more to life than living down here on earth. What about AFTER you die? Because there IS life after death. Your soul is going to live on forever and ever. Some of you may be thinking does God care about my soul? YES, He cares about your soul and how you live your life. After all, God gave you life and expects you to live your life for Him so He can get glory out of it. My question to you is: are you living a life that is pleasing to God? Or are you living a life that is pleasing to yourself and others? Yes, brothers and sisters, your soul really matters to God. One day we all are going to die or Jesus will come back first. It doesn’t matter which one comes first, our soul will come out of these old bodies to be judged by Jesus. And our soul will live somewhere forever, either in Heaven or hell. Some people live their life as though they are going to live forever and ever down here on earth. They never make reservations to meet their Maker (God). Some think once you’re dead you’re dead and there is no more you. I ask you, don’t buy into that lie! Once you are dead, the real you, your soul is going to live on forever. Remember, your soul will never die. That’s why I’m always talking about getting your life in order before you die. You may say, "preacher, how do you get your life in order before you die?" I say, "glad you asked!" You start off by confessing your sins to Jesus, then invite Him into your heart and make Him your Lord and Savior. That’s very simple! Sometimes we focus more on the world than our salvation and where we are going to spend eternity. But only Jesus can give us everlasting life in Heaven. So lets focus more on Him! Jesus is the keeper of our soul, that is, those who believe and trust in Him. Question, where do you stand in life with Jesus? Is He the keeper of your soul? Or does the devil have you in the palm of his hand? I know I sound so unreal when I talk about Heaven and hell, Jesus and satan. But you must understand they are real places and spirits! The kingdom of Heaven and the kingdom of hell! It’s where each one of us are going to spend our eternal life. It’s up to you where you will spend eternity. If you want to spend it in Heaven, just ask Jesus to help you make it in. After all, Jesus is the way to Heaven! He is the door into Heaven. Now in that other place called hell, you are on your own. The quickest way to get there is keep living apart from Jesus, keep doing your own thing living and following the world. Keep denying Jesus, God’s one and only Son, keep denying the resurrection of Jesus Christ and guess what...you have a ticket straight to hell! My brothers and sisters, I will leave you with this, this old world is in bad shape. We need help! It’s not going to get any better. I’m sorry, but we need to get on one accord to pray to Almighty God to intervene. This is for the United States of America. Neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump are going to make this United States any better. So be wise who you vote for because only Jesus can make it better when He comes back. He is our only way out of this mess we are in. Believe me when I say we are living in the last days. Come quick, Lord Jesus, come quick! ....AMEN.
