WHAT GOOD will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? – Matthew 16:26
Can’t seem to forget the tragedy of Robin Williams death. So many people leave the world without knowing that they are dearly loved. Some others, and I am not referring to Robin (God alone knows his heart), but many others do whatever they can to get a whole bag of money, and end up just cold at top. I’m telling you the truth when I say to have everything in this world, in exchange for giving up knowing the love of God, and experiencing His forgiveness, grace, and wonderful kindness, is the coldest and loneliest place to be. We are human beings, not machines. We were created with purpose. We need each other, yet the One we need the most is the same One who created us. Someone might say I don’t need Jesus, the religion of slave masters etc. If you really believe that about Jesus, you probably shouldn’t believe anything you read in the newspaper. The history of Christ is so well documented, and His message still changes lives today. Changed my life; changed the lives of countless of others and still many more are being changed. If it were in our capacity to change ourselves, then why the hopeless ones who took their own lives, couldn’t have generated the hope to keep going? We’re not little gods you see, as some believe. We are human beings, created by God. And we need Him. Friends, be merry under the sun, do whatever your heart desires, but know your price. It’s no fun alone.
