A Soul Can Be Lost


"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt.7:13-14).

If you lose something, how much effort do you put into finding it? I am almost positive that you will answer this question with a question like this.... "Well, just what is it that I have lost?" In the 15th chapter of the Gospel of Luke, there are three consecutive parables about things that are lost. They are: a sheep, a coin, a son. For a moment, lets look at the Parable of the Lost Coin... "Or suppose a woman has 10 silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.' In the same way I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents" (8-10). When something that we perceive as having value to us is lost, we'll work hard in trying to find it. Better yet, we will take special precautions to keep those things that are valuable to us in a safe condition. Jesus is telling us in today's verses, that a soul can be lost. He doesn't say it specifically, but sin is the great destructive force. In speaking to the rulers of the temple, He said this; "I go away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come" (Jn.8:14). It is imperative that we all look at the soul as something with a great value. Why? Because if it is lost, it is a person's own decision that causes it to be lost... Lets all keep our souls safe...

Have a wonderful day... Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
