Mark 8:36-37 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
These are two questions which depending on the perspective from which you consider them, may qualify as rhetorical questions or warrant a response from us. Considering the latter perspective, I begin to imagine the sort of estimates and prices we can associate with ‘a soul’.
To be able to attach a price to any item means one has had some opportunity to study the existing market and considered a number of options that realistically can represent that item. But for the soul, there are no standards of measure with which to make the comparison hence arises the same question in the text only asked in a different way “what is the worth of your soul?”
My dear, there is no need to be lost deep thought because the price of your soul has already been estimated and the price paid. It was deemed equivalent to the thousands of drops of blood shed by the Jesus, the Son of God and that, is the only thing which can be offered in exchange for your soul.
If only we had an idea of how much we were truly worth, I believe we would live differently. Not as downcast or inferior people with no real value but as jewels, gems and people who are precious in the eyes of God. Regardless of what you have been tempted to believe, you need to know that every monetary estimate of your worth is inaccurate.
Remember # your true worth cannot be estimated in gold because it was paid for with the precious blood of Jesus.
