2 Kings 18:1-37; Jeremiah 51:25-64; 1 Timothy 2:1-15

What shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26

There are many different types of exchanges these days, all dealing
with one commodity or another. But the most valuable commodity
that one can exchange is the soul. People exchange it for
so many reasons: drugs, alcohol, money, entertainment, but never
consider the consequences. Judas exchanged his soul for thirty
pieces of silver. Tragically many today exchange theirs for much
less. The only worthwhile exchange is to give your dying soul to
the Lord Jesus Christ that He might make it alive. —Ken Gunnell

Come weary soul, and here find rest;
Accept redemption, and be blessed:
The Christ who died, by God is crowned,
To pardon on redemption ground.
— D. W. Whittle
