一个灵魂的价值(陈鸽翻译)

灵魂何其宝贝,谁能计算他的价值?谁能表明他的珍贵?这永恒的生命,真是无价之宝!

人若赚得全世界,赔上自己的生命(灵魂),有什麽益处呢?人还能拿什麽换生命(灵魂)呢?”(16:26

 若用金钱来衡量,一个灵魂的价值,要远胜于全世界的财富。

 若用旅程做比较,一个灵魂能得救,要比全世界的人长途跋涉到天涯海角,都更有价值。

 只要能赢得一个人的灵魂,不论多大的痛苦、多深的羞辱、多少的艰难、多大的爱心、多么的劳苦、多重的代价,都是值得的,因为,世上一切所造之物当中,包括将来的世界,其中最伟大、最奇妙、最无价、最永恒不朽的,就是人的灵魂(生命)。

 神爱人的灵魂,胜于他所造的天地万物。他按他自己的形象塑造了人;因此人的灵魂反映了神自己的样式。然而,人人都离弃了他的创造主,偏行了己路。神就付出了代价将他们赎回,这代价就是他独生子的血。神的儿子担当了人类的罪孽,忍受了死刑,好叫人失落的灵魂可以得到拯救,得着洗净,并且再次成为圣洁。神爱人的灵魂,每一个灵魂,他的爱是何等恒常持久、何等长阔高深,远超世人的爱。

 反之,撒旦恨恶人的灵魂,因在它与神做对,所以他就使出浑身解数,挖空心思,千方百计,只为要到达一个目的,就是毁灭人的灵魂,因为撒旦知道,灵魂是神心中的至爱、神眼中的瞳仁。

 灵魂永不灭亡

 当这个地球都归于尘土、化为灰烬时,人的灵魂仍然青春常驻。

 当亿万年日消逝、千万永恒过去、时间不再存在,人的灵魂依旧存在,有意识、有自觉、有生机地存在着,永恒地存在着。

 神曾说:“……有智慧的,必能得人(灵魂)”(11:30

 若基督徒真晓得灵魂的永恒价值,真知道今生的飘渺短暂,他们就必竭尽全力,不惜代价,日以继夜,年复一年,不屈不挠的挽回一个灵魂。

The Worth of a Soul

The worth of a soul: Who can count its value? Who can appraise itsworth? An immortal soul

is beyond all price.

Forwhat is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his ownsoul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26)

In money, one soul is of more value than the wealth of the world.

In journeyings, no foreign land is too distant or any portion ofit is too inaccessible for all the

people of the world to take a journey there, if by so doing onesoul could be saved.

There is no trouble too great, no humiliation too deep, nosuffering too severe, no love too

strong, no labor too hard, no expense too large, but that it isworth it, if it is spent in the effort to win a soul.

Of all creation in this world and in the world to come, thegreatest, the most wonderful, the

most priceless, the most enduring is a soul.

God loves the soul more than all creation. He fashioned it afterHis own image, and made it

like unto Himself. Every soul has departed from God and goneastray, and God has bought every soul back again with a price. That price was the blood of His onlybegotten Son, Who took upon Himself the sin of the soul, suffering the death penalty, that thesoul might be saved, cleansed andmade holy again. God loves every soul with an everlasting, eternallove greater and deeper than any human love can possibly be.

Satan hates the soul. In Satan’s enmity towards God he is usingall his energy, using every

snare, his utmost cunning, employing every means with the onesingle purpose of ruining the soul of man, because Satan knows the soul is God’s most cherishedcreation, the apple of His eye.

A Soul Will Never Die

When this earth of ours has crumbled to dust and has passed awayinto the forgotten past, a soul will still be in its freshness of youth.

When a million million eternities have each lived out theirendless ages and have rolled by into

the unthinkable past, and time is no more, the soul will still beliving a conscious personal reality endowed with perpetual life.

Godhas said: “He that winneth souls is wise.” (Proverbs 11:30)

If Christians would only realize the value and the immortality ofprecious 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.
