ETERNAL VALUE! – Mark 8:36 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Mark 8:36 – Devotional

Mark 8:36

“What value would it be if someone were to gain the whole world, yet sacrifice their own soul?

Many prominent people seem to possess everything this world has to offer, yet end up lacking eternal value. People sometimes sacrifice their time and talent to gain notoriety only to end up hiding from that notoriety.

I recall the incident when an extremely wealthy man was asked how much money it would take for him to feel satisfied. His reply to that question was; “Just a little bit more!”

So what should we strive to accomplish in this crazy and self-centered world? It is certainly not the things that will rust, perish and fade away. Things will always fade, perish, and pass away. That is the reality of human existence.

Only as we come to the place of receiving eternal life through the precious blood of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, will we find eternal value. Eternal value can never be measured in this world’s currency. It far exceeds the value of anything that can be measured by monetary currency or human achievement. It is the value of eternal life with the Lord which Jesus paid for with His own blood!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
