Lenten Devotional - March 25th, 2010

Read: Mark 10: 17-31

What do you need for eternal life? Do you have to be rich or poor to have eternal life? Jesus shows you His love, you do not need money to have eternal life. Jesus told a young man to go sell everything you own and give it to the poor. This challenge exposed the barrier that kept the young man out of the kingdom, he loved having money. The young man came to Jesus wondering what he could do, he left seeing that he was unable to do it. Do you have what it takes? Anyone who gives up something valuable for the sake, will be repaid a hundred times over in this life. Example: Someone may be rejected by his family for accepting Christ, but he or she will gain a larger family of believers. Who is humble here will be great in Heaven.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Please watch over us all. Have us follow You and obey the Ten Commandments. Also that we know that money is not everything we need. Amen.
