Topic: Why Devil Is After Your Soul
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Mark 8:36-37. Read: Jn 10:10
When you patronize the devil for anything, there is a trade by batter kind of transaction, he gives such person what he/she wants and collects what he needs. And the devil only request for one thing from his clients - their soul which is very important to him. Due to desperation for unnecessary fame, power and wealth, man has never deemed it fit to ask himself, why does devil need my soul? Why is the soul so important to him? Why not him ask for another thing apart from the soul? If men should ask themselves such question sincerely, God wil give him an answer. But because man don't know the worth of a soul to God and the devil and does not care to know, he never has a second thought before trading it for perishable things of the world.
In view of the above, my teacher once told me that, the soul of a man is greater and more valuable than the wealth of the whole world gathered together. A man's soul contains all that he ever needs in this world. My teacher said, the soul of a man is gold, when one patronizes the devil, he collects his/her gold (soul) and returns rusty iron to the man. Man ignorantly gives his wealth, fame and power for poverty, sickness and total separation from God. God knows the importance of the soul and the devil knows too, and man must also know that his soul is more valued to God than anything else in this passing world, therefore, it must not be traded for anything.
* Your soul houses everything God has made you to become in life which is what makes it precious and why the devil needs it, do not sell it to him.
