What Shall It Profit A Man IF...



A man may know all about the winds
and his life be swept by passions fiercer than they.

A man may know all about the tides and the seas,
and his life resemble their troubled waters
that rest not and know no peace.

A man may know all about lights-the light of showers of meteors,
the light of phosphorus, the light of millions of stars, the light of the moon
when it hangs like a sickle, candle light, lamp light, electric light, the light
of the aurora borealis-and not know the Lord Jesus who said:
"I am the light of the world."

A man may know all about roads in the country,
roads in the jungle, roads through burning deserts,
and not know Jesus who said,
"I am the way."

All of which brings us to say to ask

What shall it profit a man if he be a great artist
and know not Jesus, the One altogether lovely?

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

The Lord Jesus said in:

Mark 8:36 
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall
gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

John 3:36 
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not the Son
shall not see life;
but the
wrath of God abideth on him.

Revelation 3:20: 
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man
hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me.


Jesus knocks at the door of everyone's heart but many do not want the
Lord. The Bible says that there is no other way into Heaven, except through Jesus, the Lord. We come to the Heavenly Father through His Only Begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is only found in Him! The Bible says:

Acts 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

We cannot clean ourselves up before we come to God. A person must come
to God as he is but with a humble heart. The key is humility. Each sinner
must come to Jesus as they are, acknowledging that they are sinners in need
of the Savior-- and that He is the Only One who can save them and cleanse them from their sins. It is Jesus alone who purchased our redemption by shedding His precious blood upon the Cross and therefore it is only though
Him that man can be saved. We cannot bring anything to the table.

One cannot trust in his own good works to be saved but rather
must put his complete trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
finished work. Everlasting life is only through the Savior.
Abundant life here on earth is only found in knowing Christ Jesus!


John 10:9-11
I am the door: by me if any man enter in,
he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
