The Great Exchange Pt. 4: Sell Me Your Birthright

From the very beginning, mankind has always given in to carnal desires. We’re willing to trade everything God has given us for a moment of pleasure. We’re no better than Esau, who sold His birthright for a morsel of lentil stew.

More on Selling Your Birthright

Selling Your Soul

Many people don’t believe that we can sell our soul, but Jesus asks what would mankind be willing to exchange for our soul. Today, we exchange our souls for fame, fortune, power, etc. What are you willing to sell in exchange for your soul? What is worth your soul?

16 And He told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully, 17 and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21 So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”

Luke 12:16-21

15 See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; 16 that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. 17 For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.

Hebrews 12:15-17

Reclaiming Our Soul

If we sell our soul is it possible to get it back? Is there anything we can do to get our soul back, or are we doomed for all eternity?

13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:13-14

13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in Him.

Colossians 2:13-15

There is nothing we can do to get our soul back except turning to God in repentance. We have to humble ourselves before God because only He can take our soul back. Only God can blot out our sins and pay our debt.
