It Is Well With My Soul

“Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what He hath done for my soul” (Psalm 66:16).

The Bible clearly teaches that “the soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4). Romans 3:23 teaches that “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We are left, then, with an insurmountable condition concerning our souls. “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul” (Psalm 142:4). Our eternal soul is our single most valuable possession: “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?” (Mark 8:36,37).

It is God “in whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind” (Job 12:10) who cares for our soul. “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil” (Hebrews 2:14). “(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) That He should still live for ever, and not see corruption” (Psalm 49:8,9).

The redemption of our soul cost the “precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (I Peter 1:19). The soul that disregarded the Old Testament guidelines for the Passover (portraying Christ’s atonement for the sins of the whole world) was “cut off” (Exodus 12:15). But “we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul” (Hebrews 10:39). For we “were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of (our) souls” (I Peter 2:25). “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits” (Psalm 103:2). It is well with my soul because of what He has done for my soul. CJH
