You Have A Soul
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
The Bible tells us something very important about the human race. It tells us that we are not simply highly-developed animals (although we too have physical bodies). We are unique, because God also put within each of us a soul or spirit.
Because of this, you and I have the ability to know God and to walk with Him every day. Never forget: you are not here by chance or accident. You are here because God created you and put you here, just as He has every other human being who has ever lived. And He created you and put your soul within you so you could know Him and discover His purpose for your life. The Psalmist declared, “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God” (Psalm 42:2).
How do I know this is true? One reason is because I sense it in my own heart and mind—and so do you. Bugs do not think about God … dogs do not think about God … fish do not think about God … but human beings do, because God has put our souls within us.
But I know it most of all because Jesus Christ came into the world to die for our sins and bring us back to God. Would He have given His life to save us if we were only animals? No, of course not.
If you have never done so before, Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life today, and discover the joy of being His child.
1 Peter 1:3-9.
Lord God, lover of my soul, thank You, that You are the Lover of my soul. So much so, that You sent Your Son, the Lord Jesus, to save me. Amen.
