In three short sentences, designed to surprise and challenge, the Lord shows the emptiness of possessing only ‘material’ life and clinging tenaciously to it, then the vast superiority of having life in the soul. Here is what it means to follow Christ, and be eternally safe.

And he (Jesus) said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. (Luke 9:23)
The deeper things of life are so easily crowded out today. Here at the Metropolitan Tabernacle we cater for the needs of the soul.
Permit me, as a pastor for many years, to plead with you not to let the ultimate meaning and purpose of life pass you by. True fulfilment and happiness depends on knowing who we are, and knowing the Lord, our Creator. Don’t let yourself be swept away, programmed and ruled by the shallow things of materialism and hedonism. We need God and one day we must give account to Him.
-Dr Peter Masters
