For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul? (Mark 8:36-37 ESV)
Яка ж користь людині, що здобуде ввесь світ, але душу свою занапастить? Або що назамін дасть людина за душу свою? (Від Марка 8:36-37 Ukrainian)
Our dear Father in heaven, your name is hallowed in my heart and I pray also in the hearts of believers around the world as we exalt your One and Only Son as our Messiah. Thank you dear Jesus for giving us such solid teaching about the meaning of this earthly existence that is here one day and gone the next like the morning dew. Help us to learn through your teaching and our experiences that one soul is worth more in your eyes than all the puny treasures that mankind has accumulated in the entire world. Give us greater wisdom and a sharp sense of spiritual realities so that we will not be deceived by this world with all its glitter. As we continue to trust and obey Christ as Lord, take us home to be with you forever in paradise when this life is over. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
