We live in a self-centered world. Believe in yourself. Be true to yourself. Stand up for yourself. Express yourself. We hear this all the time from every angle. But what if your self is actually a wreck? Jesus instructs us to die to our self and rediscover our soul. Soul is a tricky word. It may be easier to detect than define. That music, “has soul.” That lady “is a sweet soul.” When we feel bad for someone we “bless their soul.” But the soul is not just an idea. It’s our identity. The Bible’s cure for our ills is to rediscover that we too have a soul. And God is deeply concerned not only with the destination of our soul but also the condition of it. Our soul is what we offer back to God. It’s what we’ll take with us into eternity. And it’s what integrates our lives in the present. It’s important we learn to care for it well.
