Join us as we continue in our “Tough As…” series.
A rich man came running up to Jesus to find out how he could inherit eternal life. v:21 & 22 of Mark 10 are part of Jesus reply. Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. v:23-26 of Mark 10 say. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”
In part 5 Pastor Matt will discuss this tough teaching from Jesus.
