The Worth Of A Soul



Text: Luke 16:19-31

Once a person is born, his existence is as eternal as God’s. After this world has passed away and everything is dissolved, a soul will still be in existence.

When all the super structures, cars and other possessions in the world are burnt up with fervent heat, a soul will still be alive in everlasting consciousness either in heaven or hell. It never dies.

A soul is very precious to God. A single soul is worth more than all the wealth in the world put together. Our Lord Jesus Christ says, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul” (Mark 8:36-37).
No wonder angels in heaven rejoice when a sinner turns to the Saviour. “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance” (Luke 15:7).

What a great privilege and honour therefore, to make the Father happy by winning souls for Him. There is no trouble too great, no humiliation too inhumane, no suffering too severe, no labour too hard and no expense too large in an effort to save one soul.

In order to save sinners from impending doom, we must launch out and witness to all men. We must warn them that although God is merciful, He is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29).

God loves every soul and has done everything to save it. We should therefore be willing to suffer, sacrifice, spend and be spent in order to save souls. Remember, a soul will never die!
