“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”

– Matthew 16:26

One time, Jesus said the wisest thing that was ever said: “What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul.” Everything the Lord does in our life is for our benefit. That’s true. And so when He gets to work on your soul, you can trust that although it may be arduous or even painful, it’s a good thing … and it’s a hundred percent linked to your circumstance. Before we get into that, I want you to know that God does save, and He is going to save you. He does care about your money and your health and your relationships. He cares about those things, but He mostly cares about your heart. Jesus a healer and a Savior (praise Him for that) but He’s also our rabbi, our teacher, our guide. He’s calling you, friend, to be His student, to be His disciple, and to learn from Him.


Thank you, Lord, for your care and compassion. You care about every aspect of my life and I thank you for that.


How can you be a student of Jesus?
