“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
Matthew 16:26 KJV
Two days ago, my arthritis was hurting so much I didn’t feel like standing up and cooking anything. I started to call and have a pizza delivered but then I realized if I spent money on pizza, I wouldn’t have enough money to call a cab in case of an emergency. It is very important that we count the cost.
We can live in beautiful and big homes and drive expensive cars but if we haven’t invited Jesus into our heart to be our personal Saviour, we are on our way to hell for all eternity. Our salvation should be the most important thing in our life. May God help us to count the cost when it comes to accepting Jesus.
How sad it would be and how it would hurt Jesus and break His heart if He came back today and found us watching a movie on television that has violence, cursing and other things we shouldn’t be watching. We must count the cost before we do anything so we don’t hurt Jesus.
May God help us to count the cost when we are tempted to say something or do something that will hurt someone. We need to remember when we hurt others, we also hurt Jesus. Are you hurting Jesus by the things you say and the things you do? It should be the desire of every Christian to make Jesus happy.
