What Shall It Profit A Man

Mark 8

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

THIS STATEMENT BY THE MASTER stirs us to the soul. As i write this it is my prayer that every one that reads this post and studies with us will not fall victim of this.

It is clear that people can pursue the wealth of this world to the detriment of their soul. And that is what the Master is addressing here.

Sometimes even Believers pursue wealth at the expense of their spiritual development.
The Master here is asking an important question to humanity. He is asking, What shall it profit a man if the man gains the whole world and lose his own soul? wao!
Invariably, He is saying it is not worth it at all. It is not worth the gamble. He is saying that your soul is more valuable than not just the treasures in the whole world but the whole wide world. Your soul is more precious, more valuable than the entire world with all its treasures, cities, oceans, mountains, oil fields, diamond mines, gold mines, silver mine, etc! My my my!

All the treasures of this world cannot equal your soul. You are more valuable than them all.
You have to give attention to your soul. Don’t allow yourself to be carried away.

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ into your heart, you have to do it today. There is a hell to shun and a heaven to gain. Receive Jesus today into your heart. Just ask Him to come in and be your Lord and Saviour!

If you are already born again, you must give attention to your spiritual life. Don’t spend all your time in the pursuit of this world’s things. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you. Your life is precious to the Lord.

As you seek the kingdom, and prioritize the kingdom, He will throw the world at your feet!

Remember, all things are yours!

To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
