For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:36 (NKJV)

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:37 am by Devotions with MYK. Come, walk with me.

   I wanted to share a letter with you; I hope that no explanation will be needed. It’s from an atheist. Imagine if we Christians carried out his view. What an effect on the world that would be.

     If I firmly believed, ‘as millions say they do’, that the knowledge and practice of religion (Christianity) in this life influences destiny in another, then religion (Christianity) would mean to me everything.

     I would cast away earthly enjoyments as dross, earthly cares as follies, and earthly thoughts and feelings as vanity. Religion (Christianity) would be my first waking thought and my last image before sleep sank me into unconsciousness. I should labor in its cause alone.

     I would take thought for the morrow of eternity alone. I would esteem one soul gained for heaven, worth a life of suffering.

     Earthly consequences would never stay my hand, or seal my lips. Earth, its joys and its grieves, would occupy no moment of my thoughts. I would strive to look upon eternity alone, and on the immortal souls around me, soon to be everlastingly happy or everlastingly miserable.

     ‘I would go forth to the world and preach to it in season and out of season, and my text would be:’ ‘WHAT SHALL IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL?” Mark 8:36.

   Remember this is a letter form an atheist. It changed the world of C.T. Studd, a famous British athlete and founder of Worldwide Evangelization Crusade (WEC International Home page). He gave up all his achievements in this life for Christ’s sake. Will it change your world, your view, your witness as well?
