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 Christs 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
