Theme: The Conqueror’s Mentality
Text: Matthew 16:26
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?
You can be successful in so many endeavours in this world, but there is one thing that you need someone’s help to conquer. That is sin, with its wages being death. We had all sinned and fell short of the glory of God.
Death has no hold for those who are in Christ: He has destroyed death and holds the key to Hades. He can, therefore, give unto anyone who comes unto Him eternal life. God loves us so much that He wanted us to escape the condemnation that we brought upon ourselves through disobedience. So, He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. Therefore, whoever believes in Him would not perish but have an everlasting life.
Beloved in the Lord, I cannot end this series on the conqueror’s mentality without stating that the conqueror always thinks about where he would be in the case he dies in the flesh. Is there any hope for me after my death? he asks himself often. You can gain everything in this world, but without Jesus, it is a waste. I end this series by entreating you to accept Jesus as your Lord and personal saviour if you have not (kindly follow the prayer below) and find a Bible-believing church to fellowship with. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling if you have already accepted Jesus.
Thank you, Father, for sending your Son Jesus to come and die for me, a sinner. Jesus, I believe that you came to die for my sins and I accept you as my Lord and personal saviour. Thank you for qualifying me to be part of your family. Amen.
