What It Is To Be Lost!!!

Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Oh, that we would wake up to the thought of what it is to be lost! The world has been rocked to sleep by Satan, who is going up and down telling people that it doesn't mean anything.

I believe in the old-fashioned Heaven and Hell. Christ came down to save us from a terrible place, and any man who is cast down to Hell from here must go in the full blaze of the Gospel and over the mangled body of the Son of God.

We hear of a man who has lost his health. We sympathize with him, and we say it is very sad. Our hearts are drawn out to sympathy.

Here is another man who has lost his wealth, and we say, "That is very sad."

Here is another man who has lost his reputation, his standing among men. "That is sadder still," we say.

We know what it is to lose health and wealth and reputation, but what is the loss of all these things compared with the loss of the soul???

Any person that rejects the salvation that Christ offers will require them to step over God's grace to do so. We have a family in our church that sings a song that is about that very thing.
