People's Bible Notes for Matthew 16:26

Mt 16:26 What is a man profited? etc. All the wealth, glory, pleasure and power of earth are worthless to the dying man. If he should gain them all and lose his own soul, he has lost all. What shall a man give in exchange for his soul? What would a man not give? What is there that he can give, if in life he has not followed Christ?

Diamond Brown's comment on 2014-03-10 17:48:10:

It really tells us not to worry if we are not rich but be happy of what we got in our hands to survive As long as we accept Jesus in our life and have happiness in our family then that is it rather than being rich and end up in hell

The most precious thing god has blessed us with is our soul! People allow themselves to get caught Up in material gain! U will never ever see a uhaul follow a hurst! Can't take it with u! I hope and Pray to see heaven! And the road that is paved with gold! Hallalujah!

As Christians, our mission is to walk with Christ to stay in the Salvation Realm. Material things are vanity. A saved soul lives forever.

Nothing is better than life and I would rather lose everything and gain life in Christ Jesus.

At times we spend money we are not supposed to, at times we walk with the wrong people, at times we do things that grieve the Holy spirit. All these things we earn at the expense of our souls.

 

Tolits's comment on 2012-09-05 20:25:00:

riches on earth will never save one's soul. God is not interested in what we have, but He is after our soul..

 

Brother Al's comment on 2012-02-18 07:36:58:

If people really understood how reallly huge this statement is they would run find salvation as quickly as possible. Jesus our Lord is saying that he places more value on one human soul than all of the worlds wealth right now there are at least 7 billion people on the planet that would me in Gods eyes it would take at least 7 billion planets just like ours to compare in other words your life and my life more valuable to God than all the worlds riches Thank God for His Awesome Love.
