Priceless - Matt. 16:26 - worth more than world

Why ?

Divine in Origin - God formed life

Zechariah 12:1 “formed the spirit of man”

Redeemed by blood of Christ

1 Pet. 1:18-19 “precious blood of Christ”

Eternal - Matt. 25:46 “everlasting”

We can Exchange our Soul

“In exchange for his soul” - Matt. 16:26

Exchange = trade, barter, sell, deal

WEALTH

Luke 12:16-21 “not rich toward God”

Demas - 2 Tim.4:10 “loved this present world”

2 Tim.3:4 “Lovers of pleasures”

1 Tim.5:6 “dead while she liveth”

A Foolish Trade

  • WHY ?
  • World cannot satisfy
  • World does not last
  • Matt.24:35 “shall pass away”
  • 1 Jn. 2:17 “the world passeth away”
  • 2 Pet. 3:10 “shall be burned up”
  • Can’t take it with us
  • Job 1:21 “…naked shall I return thither”
  • 1 Tim. 6:7 “…we can carry nothing out”
slide9

A Foolish Trade

  • We can’t have everything
  • Gain one thing at the loss of something else
  • Cannot have a life of sin and have heaven later
  • Can’t sow to flesh and reap eternal life
  • Can Have sin now - sacrifice heaven hereafter
  • Can have heaven hereafter - must give up sin now
  • Would be a Great loser
  • Gain world and lose soul - be foolish
  • Can’t gain the whole world
slide10

Most Tragic of all Losses

Lesser losses are bad enough

Gain world and lose health

Loss of soul means two losses

Heaven

Life here - peace, joy, Christ likeness

An Entire loss

Loss of soul is irreparable

Loss is eternal - everlasting - Matt. 25:46

slide11

That which pleases is but for a moment

That which troubles is but for a moment

That alone is important which endures forever

slide12

Our Soul Endures Forever

That alone is important which endures forever

Will It Be Lost

Or Saved ?

What is a man profited ?
