Our soul is our most prized possession

our-soul-in-god-handsFirst of all , we need to take closer look to this psalm from the Holy Bible: “For what is a man, if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul, or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” and now we can answer ourselves to some important questions:

Why is the soul so important? There’s nothing in this world is as valuable as the soul? I’ve tried to answer this question for a long time.

The soul is often compared to the heart, you love or hate, the feeling of anger or sympathy, the heart feels everything. When you love and see the person you love, focus on the heart and you’ll notice that the feeling comes from there.  You can feel that and you can thank the lord through the thankful prayers which you invoke each day.Any deep feeling you have, do this and you will always reach the same conclusion.

Can the heart be compared to the soul? Yes, the man has two hands (he can lose one or both and still live), two feet, two eyes, etc.. The man can live without organs, without a kidney, without a lung, without a liver “but it regenerates”. I saw a shocking case: a child has reached the age of one year although was born without brains (it can easily be found on the internet), so a man can live without brain activity in exceptional cases, but it can.

Yes, the heart can be likened to the soul. What can a man give in exchange for his heart? Nothing! A heartless man has no life, the same without a soul!

The man has three lives, from the first moment of life he gets a soul, the heart grows, in the second life the heart matures and the soul matures and in the third life the man who hasn’t lost his soul has a fellowship with God.

Is the Bible Reliable and Relevant

Is the Bible Reliable and Relevant?(The first half of this sermon has been gleaned from many sources of information. Particularly helpful was the blog of Robert Lundburg in the footnotes, but some of it has been collected from years of reading and study independently through many sources. The second half of this sermon on Relevance is uniquely collected as best I can remember and was organized as part of this sermon from previous sermons. No plagiarism was intended in the second part, but app …..

Building When Discouraged

MessageHave you ever done one of those projects where, at first, you are really excited and enthusiastic but, as you see what you are actually achieving, you realise that your handiwork is really quite limited?People who build model railways are like that. They have in their mind a picture of what it is going to look like. It is often a grand picture of towns, and mountains, and industry. And so they are very enthusiastic. But after the initial enthusiasm they realise that all they …..

What Should the Church Be in 2013?

What Should the Church Be in 2013?Ephesians 5:25b-27Before answering the question, “What should the church be in 2013”, it would do us good to define what we mean by the term “the church”. Some would define church as a denomination – the Roman Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, the Nazarene Church, etc. The church is also used to mean the whole body of professed Christian religious tradition through history. Still others when talking about the church refer to the church as the building …..
