Devotion: What will a person profit?


Mat 16:26 “For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?”

A person may be popular, they may enjoy life, they may be loved by the world, they may be making money, people may talk good at their funeral and  may attract the huge crowd but what will that be if they lose their own soul in hell? Each one should check their life. Make sure your number one vision of all your visions is to make it to heaven.

God number one vision is for people to be saved 1 Tim 2:4( who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth). That is why He sent His son to be a saviour and not an accountant, a lawyer or some other profession. Not that being a professional is not important but because every profession will not matter in that day when we will not be in the physical body. In that life your money, education, your fame, your impact in the world will not matter. What will matter is whether you were born again and whether you lived as a believer or not.

Be born again and live according to the Word and ensure your name is in the book of life. Some people have their names taken off from the book   because of the life they live which is not according to the Word. Let your name not be blotted out.Revelation 3 : 5 ” The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.”

Those whose names are not maintained in it are destined for lake of fire.Revelation 20 : 15 ” And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Avoid it and its time to make the right decision. There is no repentance in the spiritual world. Once a person dies they are lost forever even if the whole earth prays for them, they do it in vain. Prepare your life while you are in the physical body. Forgive all who did evil against you. Mar 11:26 “But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your transgressions.”All the non forgivers are destined for hell.

Take up the role of saving many from the same. Teach them about Christ and let them register in the book of life. Dont be tied to minister to others. It may look out of place but is necessary. Heavenbrejoices when one person is saved, so be proud as you minister to others and they get saved from hell.
