God is a wise investor. He created the heaven and the earth which demonstrates His awesome power and majesty. However, His greatest investment was man. He created man in His own image and likeness, breathed into Adam’s nostrils; hence every soul is priceless to Him [Genesis chapter 1].
The soul of man is priceless. However, after death every soul will be valued by God to determine if it was worth His investment. The good souls will be harvested into His kingdom while the rejects will have their portion in hell fire. It is that serious! We determine the fate of our souls here on earth.
Here on earth, the forces of darkness seek to destroy people’s lives as their ultimate goal is to populate hell, but God provided for our redemption through the death and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ [John 3:16].
The sum total of the worth of someone to God at death is the fear of God that was in the person’s heart, how wise the person was, the love shown to others and how the person’s life fostered the cause of God’s kingdom.
Paraphrased Jesus said, “Someone’s life or net worth does not consist in the abundance of things the person has” (Luke 12:15].
All souls are valuable to God while alive but at death God weighs or judges the soul. Death is the final curtain in the stage of life which covers one scene and opens another. How prepared are you to face your maker!
Call upon Him today and ask for forgiveness through the blood of Jesus, which provides assurance for your salvation. Only then will you be a useful vessel as you live your life daily to please Him and do the work of His kingdom.
Oh Lord, open my spiritual eyes and quicken my understanding in Jesus name.
