Matthew 16:26 ” What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? “

For many, they’re playing a version of the old game show, “Lets Make a Deal” with God.  They’re bartering “good works and deeds” in hopes it will get them a free pass into heaven.  Or they’re pinning their eternal hope on the shirt-tails of a Believing Grandparent.  Neither will work…for there is no earthly commodity that exists that’s a fair exchange for our soul.  We can’t trade anything we have for the free gift of salvation Jesus offers us…and no amount of good deeds will get us any closer to heaven.  So the answer to the question, “What can a man give in exchange for his soul?” is simple…there is nothing.
