Hell Enlarges Every Day
Matthew 16:26 (KJV) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
This question begs us to view the gain of fame, fortune, and material assets from this world through the lens of God’s vision for opportunities for the regeneration of souls so that whosoever can spend eternity in sweet fellowship with God. Throughout time, many foolish individuals have chosen to skip over a relationship with God all for accumulating riches on earth and sent themselves packing on a fast-moving highway to an eternal hell. The truth is Hell enlarges from the physical death of foolish-hearted people every single day.
Though it is possible to serve God and accumulate riches on this earth, not many successfully choose God’s divinely directed route amid the accumulation of notable worldly success. Most often, a choice to profit in this world leads to inevitable spiritual poverty with God. Why, because the addition of world-based goods and fame naturally depletes necessary desires and direction given exclusively by God to softened souls.
Any soul choosing the fast track to material success, distancing himself from God seals his or her fate for an eternal address apart from fellowship with God. Each of us shall ask ourselves this vital question concerning our spiritual health and lasting well-being according to the lens of God.
