Heart of the Father

Even so it is NOT the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish (Matt.18.14).

The basic interest of God that needs protection in the universe is neither the stock market nor the technological inventions, it is the souls of people that are at the risk of spending eternity without their Maker. It is never the will of God to lose a single soul to the arch enemy. Heaven’s only interest on earth is people.

As we continue to fellowship with Him, we begin to realize the value of a soul. God is mindful about his creatures especially human beings. He craves to have a deeper fellowship with us. It is the reason he sent the pastors, evangelists, prophets and other ministers. It is the reason He saved you and wants others saved. Take people out of the world and He will have nothing to do with the planet earth!

This burden is the reason Jesus poised a question to help us realize how much value a soul is worth.

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? (Mark.8.36).

Friend, nothing would count for the value of a soul, not all the goods in the world. Heaven would rather have a single soul repent than have the whole goods in the world bestowed on a single saint. Having this understanding should enhance our fellowship with God. If you need to offer acceptable worship to God, let His concern be yours as well. Rescue the perishing souls through the message of eternal life.
