profit [betsa`] is there in my blood [dam],
when I go down [yarad] to the pit [shachath]? Shall the dust [`aphar]
praise [yadah] thee? shall it declare [nagad] thy truth ['emeth]? KJV-Interlinear
"What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust
praise Thee? Will it declare Thy faithfulness? NASB
For all who have not believed in Christ, there is no value in life, because they only exist as the flesh or the dust of life.
As an unbeliever, or a non-Christian person, you only exist as body and soul, with no relationship with God, whatsoever.
God is the power and sovereign authority that holds and maintains all things together. Without God, you have no such power or authority and thus your destiny is one of eternal chaos and the terror that will accompany it with no possible solution.
In order to avoid that, you must acquire a relationship with God. Something that you cannot do on your own. However, God has done something for you, so you can gain a relationship with Him and it was the work of Christ on the Cross which paved the way for that relationship. But in order for you to have it, you have only to believe in Christ, nothing more.
There is no way for you to earn or even to deserve salvation, but God did all that was necessary. So, to reject God and Christ and doctrine, you are making the fools decision, when all that is required of you is to form a mere thought in your mind, to believe in Christ. That is really the easiest thing that anyone can do in all of life.
The blood and the pit and the dust, all speak of death and the end of any and all options that you will ever have.
For when death occurs, you have no further thinking, no further activity, no further actions that you can perform in life. Blood does not speak or think. Dust does not speak of think. And the pit only receives that which is worthless and decaying, and no thought or words come out of the pit.
There is no second chance, no reincarnation, no ascension, no do-overs that will bring you back to life or to another life, so you might try and try again at pursuing a course that does not exist.
The corpse does not praise God. The corpse does not pray to God. The corpse does not have a spiritual life.
These things must be done while you are alive.
Faith for salvation and a daily study and living in accordance with Gods mandates throughout your life, must be done while you are alive. Reach your moment of death and you have missed the greatest opportunity that God and life has given you.
So, take advantage of the opportunities that God has given you, and pursue your spiritual life now while you can.
