Bible Challenge – Matthew 19

“Jesus told him, ‘If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”” v.21 (NLT)

What must I do to have eternal life? This is one of the greatest questions in all of Scripture.  Jesus gave this answer because there is nothing that we can humanly do to earn or achieve eternal life.  In His response Jesus tells this man to give up everything he owned, then told him to come follow Him.

Our stuff, position, and pride, many times keeps us from following Jesus.  The call to eternal life is simple, Follow Me! But the expectation and commitment meant that I have to give ALL of me, so I can experience ALL of Him!

Today, what are you hanging on to? What are you trying to do to gain God’s Approval? Jesus simply asks us to follow! Will you follow Him today, or will stuff get in the way?
