Have you been contemplating the value of your soul...of every soul? It is an incredible joy to consider how immensely valuable souls are to the Creator. Our souls are an amazing aspect of our humanity, a creation of God which belongs to God. With all wisdom and love, He has given us the responsibility of stewarding this possession of His--our souls. It is only with stubborn trust in the wisdom, love and power of God that our souls can be nurtured, grown and ultimately saved.
Much danger exists for the soul...it can be devoured, destroyed and even lost. The enemy, Satan, hates our very souls and longs to destroy them. The soul is a point of attack in many aspects. We will explore those points in the coming days. But more exciting, we will explore the beautiful design God has for our souls.
Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. He paid the redemption price for our souls and healing and deliverance is ours for the asking. The course of our life is determined in the soul...seeking and serving the Lord is an act of the soul. As we move forward with this thought train, John 10:10 seems to be a great reminder that God's desire is for our souls to lead us toward joy-filled, abundant life!
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
