And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
Mark 8:36 (NLT)
How many of us truly take these words to heart? Is the salvation of your soul your first priority in this life? We come into this life with nothing and neither can we take anything with us into the next life. So what exactly do we seek to gain? Some people may be overwhelmed and confused by the many different religions in the world. “Where do I start?” they may say. Jesus says that he is the truth. What better place to start. The fact of the matter is that the Bible claims that Jesus is God. He has manifested himself in a form that we can all recognize and relate to. Have you read his story? What is your take? How hard have you fought to get to know him? What are you willing to sacrifice? Many people may not be willing to suffer to get to know him, to follow his commandments or, to spread the Gospel, but when everything is finished will we long for that opportunity?
