The Value of a soul
The world renowned evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke, was asked by some ministers of the gospel to give three reasons why Jesus died. The evangelist answered them in His humorous way: “three reasons are not enough for the death of Christ. I have billions of reasons why Jesus died.” He said. When probed further by these intuitive ministers in a mocking manner, He answered them thus: “every human being on the surface of the earth is a reason for the death of Christ.” Going by the population of the world today, we have about 7billion reasons why Jesus died on the cross. You are one and I am one.
Well, I want to remind you of this fact: If you were the only person on the surface of the earth, Jesus would still have died. That’s how valuable you are.
You Cost That Much
You cost Him that much. I mean, you cost God that much. The very blood of His Eternal Son is the value for your soul life.
The Bible says that “the redemption of your soul is costly” (Psalm 49:8, NKJV). That means your redemption is priceless. Do you know what it means for something to be priceless? It simply means that you are worth a very large sum of money- you are expensive. That large sum of money is the Blood of Jesus. Your cost is the blood of His only begotten Son. You cost God His very life. Do you see how valuable you are! Tell me why then would God give up on you! He will never. I repeat: God will never give up on you. You might just have been wallowing in sin and living your own life in rebellion against God. But let me tell you something, God will get you someday. You are just running nowhere. He is always coming beside you. Remember that He is God. You will meet him where ever you run to. He will not give up on you. Why not just turn all around and make peace with Him now by accepting His love gift for your soul-Jesus Christ of Nazareth. God will give up on you if and only if He would give up on the blood of the cross of Christ-His Son. But in all eternity, I tell you, God can never and will never give up on the blood of Christ. Because that is His only hope for the reclaiming and reconciliation of humankind. You were bought with a priceless price.
Your Soul and the Whole World
Jesus in an account in the Gospels contrasted the worth of the human soul with the world. He said: “For what will it profit a person if he gains the whole world and loses his soul.” (Mk.8:36, NKJV). That means the whole world with all its wealth, riches, diamonds, oil, gold etc is less in value to the price God places on a soul. God would go for an individual soul in place of the whole world. Think about that! That simply means that if there was just one person that is living on this earth and needed to be saved, God would still have send Jesus to die for the redemption of that individual. God prices the individual person more than He would the entire globe and all its wealth and riches put together. What love! I will not demean this value.
Put one soul against all the wealth of the nations, God would go for that soul instead of the whole world. That’s how beautiful you are. Jesus did not die just because of numbers, He did nonetheless. But He died for you as an individual. You are precious.
For I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; therefore, the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, I have a goodly heritage. The blessings of Abraham are on me, and are mine. The fat of this land falls on my path and I eat of the good of it. My head is good and my life is sweet in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
For I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, my path is like the shining sun, that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. For me, it can only get better. Hallelujah!
Did you know that a 30 minute walk every day can make you live longer and healthier?
Did you also know that a good sleep every day can do the same for you?
Did you know that brushing your teeth before going to bed every night can prevent much of tooth problems.
Take responsibility for your health.
Youth Corner: Why Me?
I was intrigued about going to the university and it was going to be my very first time of ever leaving apart from my family and particularly my over bearing mother. I looked forward earnestly to the resumption day; the time I would fully gain my freedom and independence from her control and then be freed to live my life.
I am a Christian and believe that I should not have anything to with a man sexually until I am married. Resumption day came and with joy I packed my little belonging together and went to school. My ever thoughtful and kind father dropped me off at the campus.
On our way, he recalled stories after stories of his own experience on campus as a student. I taught to myself: now is my time to explore my world too. He cautioned me to not forget the Bible principles that I have been taught. And I promised him that I would not; never will I let him down.
Three months into the first semester, here I am with an unwanted pregnancy.” He told me he loves me and that he would help me catch up with the system,” being two years ahead of me in school and of course also was in my department, she quarried.
He lied to me. And now, he has abandoned me.
I can’t even tell my parents about it. I have let God down. Will He ever forgive me? Lord, why me?
But God Is Not Through With You
Hang on dear! There is hope for you. Ask God to forgive you and He will. He is a merciful father. But you have to live up to your responsibility and own up to your parents.
They will not kill you. We all make mistakes. But just that you would have to choose now between going to school and having your baby. You can put the two together if you try a little bit harder.
And don’t tamper with that baby. Have it. It might just be the only child you would ever have.
God can turn your mistakes into a miracle.
Healing of 1 ½ years skin disease.
I heard that you pray for the sick. I had this skin disease on my face for over one and a half years. I have treated it with all kinds of medication but just wouldn’t go.
I heard about your crusade, and after the crusade you came to my house to pray for me. Immediately after the prayers, the scratching and itching stopped. One week later all the symptoms were gone.
Today, I have a brand new face with no single trace of skin infection whatsoever.
I give glory to God for healing me in the name of His Son Jesus Christ. Amen!

God bless you
If you want to be born again, please say this prayer and mean it from your heart:
Dear heavenly Father, I know that you have a plan for my life, because you created me and you love me. You intend for me to live in eternity with you in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Forgive me all my sins, my failures and my past. I believe the blood of Your Son, Jesus, cleanses me from all my sin. I repent of my sins now; for I am truly sorry for them. I invite You, Jesus, to come into my heart and be my personal Savior. Thank you for saving me, according to what the Bible tells me in Romans 10:13-whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Amen.
Write or call us to share your testimony of salvation. Join a Bible believing, praying and Holy Ghost filled church. Then seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and prophesying.
