Dear family and friends,
Our 9th song is about the Christian charge to “share the good news of God’s salvation from day to day” (Psalm 96). We want to encourage you to “go, labor on” through this song. May this be the soundtrack of our evangelistic lives!
Here is a dear old tract about why the Christian loves how he loves:
The Worth of a Soul
The worth of a soul: Who can count its value? Who can appraise its worth? An immortal soul is beyond all price. In money, one soul is of more value than the wealth of the world. In suffering, it is better that all the people of the world should suffer all their lives on earth, if by suffering, one soul could be saved. In journeyings, no foreign land is too distant, or any portion of it too inaccessible, for all the people of the world to take a journey there, if by so doing one soul could be saved.
There is no trouble too great, no humiliation too deep, no suffering too severe, no love too strong, no labor too hard, no expense too large, but that it is worth it, if it is spent in the effort to win a soul. Of all creation, in this world and in the world to come, the greatest, the most wonderful, the most priceless, the most enduring is the soul.
God loves the soul more than all creation. He fashioned it after His own image, and made it like unto Himself. Every soul has departed from God and gone astray; and God has brought every soul back again with a price. That price was the blood of His only begotten Son, who took upon Himself the sin of the soul, suffering the death penalty, that the soul might be saved, cleansed and made holy again. God loves every soul with an everlasting, eternal love greater and deeper than any human love can possibly be.
Satan hates the soul. In Satan’s enmity towards God he is using all his energy, using every snare, his utmost cunning, employing every means with the one single purpose of ruining the soul of man, because Satan knows the soul is God’s most cherished creation, the apple of His eye.
A Soul Will Never Die
When this earth of ours has crumbled to dust, and has passed away into the forgotten past, a soul will still be in its freshness of youth. When in the fathomless future, eternity has become hoary with age, the soul will still be young. When a million million eternities have each lived out their endless ages, and have rolled by into the unthinkable past, and time is no more, the soul will still be living, a conscious personal reality, endowed with perpetual life. God has said: “He that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30). If Christians would only realize the value and the immortality of precious souls, and the shortness of this earthly life, they would work feverishly, unceasingly, with all their greatest energy, day after day, year after year, that they might save one soul. O Christians! Are there souls passing your way? Are you bestirring yourself in their behalf, that they may have eternal life and joy; or are you allowing them to cross your path, and to pass unwarned to an ETERNAL DEATH?” Christ died for our sins and rose again.”
“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” –John 3:16
Do you trust Him?
In Jesus’ mighty name,
