Demands of the Soul

Man holding sign that reads, "As unto Christ"

The soul demands as much attention as the body. It demands fellowship and communion with God. It demands worship, quietness, and meditation. Unless the soul is fed and exercised daily, it becomes weak and shriveled. It remains discontented, confused, restless. Many people turn to alcohol to try to drown the cryings and longings of the soul. Some turn to a new sex experience. Others attempt to quiet the longings of their souls in other ways. Nothing but God ever completely satisfies, because the soul is made for God, and without God it is restless and in secret torment. The first step to God is a realization of your spiritual poverty. The poor in spirit do not measure the worth of life in earthly possessions, which fade away, but in terms of eternal realities, which endure forever. Wise is the man who openly confesses his lack of spiritual wealth and in humilty of heart cries, “God, be merciful unto me, a sinner.”

Revive Your Soul Today. Cry Out to God.

Listen to Billy Graham’s message about the value of your soul.

Prayer for the day

As I look to You, my Lord and my Redeemer, the strivings of my soul will be satisfied. You alone bring lasting joy.

    There is only one true way to satisfy the yearnings of your soul. That is to have a full and complete relationship with Jesus Christ Lord and Saviour of all mankind and Holy son of God. All other paths to find peace in your heart will fail.
