Psa. 103:1:  Bless the Lord, O My Soul


The Psalmist says I will bless or praise the Lord with my inner being, which is my soul.  The soul of man is really the man; but to many people it is the forgotten man.  It is that part of us that we have neglected.  We as members of the 20th Street church of Christ are trying to do what the psalmist says he wants us to do and that is to bless God with our souls, with our whole being—our whole self.  You will feed the body, dress up the body; exercise the body, but what about the soul, the forgotten man?  The spirit is the life of the body and soul that God gave at the beginning and every day we live.  But what about the soul?  The psalmist says, “Bless the Lord O my soul.” 

Join us as we worship the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, strength, and soul.  Remember the soul.  Jesus says what doeth a man profit if he shall gain the whole world and lose his soul.  For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?  (Matt. 16:26)

Remember the soul.  Jesus says, “Fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”  (Matt. 10:28)

Join us as we remind men, women, boys and girls that we have a soul to save.

Bless the Lord O’ my soul, bless His holy name!
