"The Overseer of Our Souls"

“The Overseer of Our Souls”

“He Himself bore our sins” in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by His wounds you have been healed.” For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of you souls. 1 Peter 2:24-25

Jesus Christ, the OVERSEER of OUR SOULS, took on ALL the sins of mankind, as He, Himself hung, bleeding and dying on an old, rugged, wooden cross. Why? You might ask would He do such a thing. He did it so that mankind would NOT be held by the POWER and the PENALTY of sin. And that they might DIE to sins and LIVE for RIGHTEOUSNESS.

The statement: “By His wounds you have been healed.” Is NOT speaking of a physical healing, but it is an ACCOMPLISHED FACT that refers to a SPIRITUAL HEALING that brings SALVATION to every individual who comes to Him and TRUSTS Him as their SAVIOR and LORD.

Jesus not only sets the example for us, but He gives PROTECTION and GUIDANCE to those who are headed the wrong way, but TURNS back to Him for their SALVATION. “Like sheep going astray.” And like a GOOD SHEPHERD He will GUIDE and PROTECT His beloved sheep. Are you allowing Him to OVERSEE your LIFE as a TRUE BELIEVER? Is He the OVERSEER of your SOUL?

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Him, then you are NOT a part of His flock, but you are wondering down the WRONG path, the one that will lead you straight into an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. In order to ESCAPE that kind of DESTINY, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ALLOW Jesus Christ to be the OVERSEER of YOUR SOUL, and live for RIGHTEOUSNESS. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
