Enjoying the Journey

Eternal Life: the life of the age to come..

Salvation: the sum total of God's goodness to us.

1. Jesus shifts from what is good  to who is good.

    “And he said to him, ‘Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only     one who is good.”  Matt. 19:17

2. Jesus calls the rich young man to give ahead. 

    “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the    poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”           Matt. 19:21                                                                                                                     

3. What the rich young man lacks is what he has.                           

    When the young man heard this word, he went away grieving, for he had             many possessions.  Matt.19:22


    “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother      or children or fields, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold, and will             inherit eternal life.” Matt. 19:29
