How well are we talking care of our soul? Is your soul at rest with God?
Psalms 24:1-10 NLT
The earth is the lord ’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Who may climb the mountain of the lord ? Who may stand in his holy place? Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies. They will receive the lord ’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior. Such people may seek you and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The lord , strong and mighty; the lord , invincible in battle. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The lord of Heaven’s Armies— he is the King of glory.
What are we doing that keeps our soul from surrendering completely to God?
Dishonesty,jealousy,hurrying.I am sure there are many things that keeps us from taking care of our souls better.
Luke 9:23-25 NLT
Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed? Or lose your soul.
The lost Soul
Hardened: a soul that had surrounded its self with a protective shell and becomes cynical, bitter, and/or suspicious
Rocky: A soul that is shallow, preoccupied with its own need, and seeks immediate gratification.
Thorny: A soul that is cluttered, worried about externals (lifestyle, reputation, activities), and choked by desires for things beside God.
Every day we..make choices that effect our souls and what condition we will put it in. The task change for us is will we take up our cross daily and choose to sacrifice our life’s for Jesus and live truly live.
What we put in our soul affects our Will,Mind,Body and Soul.
