What is the most expensive item in the world? This might seem relative to some people depending on their financial status.  Some will find that question interesting because it’s what they pursue in life – that is getting the most expensive item – which can be a car or jewellery, a house or something people can point at the direct some accolades to your person. The greatest teacher ever, Jesus Christ, admonished us not to lose the most expensive item in the world.  Matthew 16:26 says: “ And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?[a] Is anything worth more than your soul? ”  

Just for one moment, let’s think about that one statement.

From that one verse of scripture, you can see that you gain gain the whole world and yet lose another thing.   So what’s the value of the soul?

 

 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?[a] Is anything worth more than your soul? – Matthew 16:26

The soul must be extremely import for Jesus to make such a statement.  The question is how expensive is the soul to make it that important?

Evangelize the World!

Evangelize the World!

Welcome to Evangelism Today. 

I want to say a big thank you for taking interest in evangelizing the world.   This is simply a command from the Lord Jesus and we should take it more seriously seeing the day of the Lord approaching.

This blog will focus on biblical text and insights that help you tell the world about Jesus.   Jesus indeed loves everyone in the world but does not love sin.  He has already paid for it and if only the world will focus on this love of God, then the world will be a better place.  Or better still, the people will be more loving, forgiving, caring and many more things attributes and attitudes that the Lord encouraged us to take on.

As I close this very short first post, I remember the text of Mark 16:15:

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

we now have access to the whole world, let’s follow this simple command of the Lord – preach the Gospel!  Not self-help, not self-motivation, not 7 steps to greatness or 5 steps to financial prosperity.  Just simply the Gospel.  The big question is “What is the Gospel?”   We will have a look at the Gospel that Paul said he is not ashamed of (Romans 1:16).

May God strengthen your heart and faith to begin to  live for Him daily.  Amen.
