Everlasting Soul

Spread the love

One-minute read.

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, fear him, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 10:28-31

Living in a world that fears death, God tells us we shouldn’t because our souls can’t die.  However, if we don’t follow Jesus and submit our lives to Him, we will experience hell, which does exist.  After Death,[i] a documentary based on thousands of case studies of near-death experiences, shares stories of people who encountered both heaven and hell.  Only faith in the Lord keeps us from the fiery furnace.  Fearing God leads to everlasting life when we give Him the reverence He deserves; we need not fear anything else.

God knows the going ons of sparrows, not one of them falling to the ground without His awareness.  And the Lord knows how many hairs we have on our heads.  Recently I did a hair analysis test for allergies.  They needed 4-5 strands of hair to analyze.  When I clipped them from my head, you couldn’t even notice.  How the Lord knows how many hair follicles I have, I can’t begin to understand.  But I trust that He does.  The Creator knows the tiniest details about us, which should give us confidence that He also knows the big ones.

Our souls don’t die, everlasting.  Determining where we spend eternity comes down to believing in God or not.  Fearing the Lord and respecting His sovereignty means we have nothing else to fear.  God’s plan for our lives will unfold despite our efforts to deter them.  In our weakness, the Lord makes us strong.  In Him, we can trust.


Our souls don’t die.


Lord, thank You for Your saving grace that gives us eternal life with You.  God, help those who don’t believe in Your mighty power.  Give them eyes to see and ears to hear the truth of Your existence.
