Jordan For Jesus #019 "Eternity (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-07-24 13:51:09
This world and everything in it is fading more each day. Soon it will all pass away because nothing lasts but Jesus. He is the only one who will be standing in the end because He is eternal which means without beginning or end.
Jesus is all that matters. The temporary trophies of this life may seem wonderful for a season but they will fade just like the world.
Jesus is the only eternal treasure. Nothing can truly satisfy the human heart but the one who created it. People are searching for something to fill the empty void within their soul.
They try to fill that empty void with many things of the world that may satisfy for a time but their satisfaction runs out because everything in the world does not last.
What people do not realize is that only Jesus can fill that empty void inside their soul. People were created by God for God alone. People were not created, destined or designed for the world.
We are live in the world but we are not of it. All of this world and everything that it contains is not worth your soul. You cannot put a price on your soul. Your soul is priceless. Only Jesus can afford the cost because He alone is more than worthy and more than deserving of all of us, everything and so much more than we can ever begin give Him.
We can't outgive God but He has outgiven us in so many ways. The least we can do is give Him our soul. You should value your soul too much to let the world destroy it. God values it above the death of His Son Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ values it above His life.
Why throw something away that is worth more than the world? It makes sense! Why gain the world and lose your soul? Is wisdom not more precious than silver and gold.
"For what does it profit you if you should gain the whole world and in return lose your soul." (Mark 8:36)
