“I“Why should I fear in the days of evil,

When the iniquity at my heels surrounds me?
Those who trust in their wealth
And boast in the multitude of their riches,
None of them can by any means redeem his brother,
Nor give to God a ransom for him—
For the redemption of their souls is costly,
And it shall cease forever—
That he should continue to live eternally,
And not see the Pit……”

“But God will redeem my soul from the power of [f]the grave,
For He shall receive me.”

Psalm 49:5-9, 15

What is the value of human life? No matter how much wealth we possess, or possessions we own in this life, we can never ever have enough to be the owners of our soul. It is only God who determines the beginning and the end of life and it is only Him who can redeem our soul, to give us eternal life.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 10:28, “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

God knows that man has a living soul, therefore the happiness, joy, peace He provided is for life – eternal life. Have you received the gift of eternal life?

On the Cross of Calvary, a ransom was paid – the just for the unjust, the righteous for the unrighteous. There was no peace made but by Jesus’ blood on the Cross. It was a debt that could never be paid in a person’s lifetime. He conquered death for our sake and His purpose is to bring us to the Father in Heaven.

In everything we do while on this earth, let us remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 16:26, For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?


“The Bible says in Psalm 121:3 that God never closes His eyes on us, that He watches over us, He who guards us does not slumber nor sleep. If He is with us all the time why then do so many of us only seek refuge in Him occasionally?”


“Do you feel like giving up while praying for situations or people? Don’t lose heart because prayer is not empty words but an acknowledgment that there is a superior realm that controls the visible and invisible worlds. And the King of this realm is the king of your heart. When He says yes, no one can say no.”


“Sometimes our lives are so centred on what we ourselves are going through – how we are doing, how we are treated, what our situation looks like, that we forget that God doesn’t look at people the same way we do. He holds all men’s hearts in His hands and can use anyone to bring to pass His purpose.
Someone you see as a thorn in your flesh today can be your helper tomorrow – that is why tomorrow is a mystery.”
