Summary: Not enough people neglect God and His Word, but compounding the folly, they fill their mind and soul with junk food!
Mathew 10:28”And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
We have plethora of websites to talk about nourishment of the hair, nails, eyes, skin, body and you also have nourishment hand cream and what not! Not many care of nourishment of soul, though! Are you there? No wonder, because of our sick soul which is undernourished we drift away from God, church becomes a bore, Bible is shelved and good preachers are shunned. Not enough people neglect God and His Word, but compounding the folly, they fill their mind and soul with junk food! ‘Stay home and earn million dollars’ becomes more attractive than ‘obey God and be blessed.’ I just read in the newspapers that some colleges are literally selling MBA certificates by luring the students with delicious offers like, ‘no attendance, no exams, come and take the certificates.’ How do you like it? If a church announces, ‘you don’t have to pray, fast or read the Bible, come to Him who will give you abundant blessings, I bet that church would be flooded!’ This is the scenario today!
No more do we have ‘good substance’ and solid ‘meat’ in the newspapers, but much of the space is occupied with entrepreneurs sharing their ‘victory’ stories and we have youngsters reading it with open jaws and drooling. Success, making money is good, alright; but not at the risk of forsaking God and your soul! Are you listening? Read what Jesus says:
Mathew 16: 26”For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.”
Friend, if you have never heard of the ‘Son of Man’ coming back to earth again to reward each one of us according to our works, then hear it today and set right your life; after all you cannot carry your car and palatial apartment to heaven or hell. Are you there?
Listen! Jesus said, ‘fear Him who is able to destroy the soul!’ When you stubbornly continue to sin and ignore Him, then your soul would be destroyed and you would go to hell. If you do not take care of the soul, then it would die! Have you heard of this news before? Hear it today. This is more important that uploading photos on your facebook; satan had masterminded and shrewdly introduced the facility of camera in mobiles, they are used for catastrophic purposes. Nourish your soul today! David prayed, Psalm 116:8”For You have delivered my soul from death..”
Someone said: ”The soul is placed in the body like a rough diamond; and must be polished, or the lustre of it will never appear.”
