Text: Mark 10:17-22


The Question of Eternal Life (10:17-20)

  • Jesus counters the rich young ruler’s question by pointing him to a true understanding of God.
  • Jesus proves that the law is not a ladder by which we reach up to God; it is a mirror that shows us our need for God to reach down to save us.


The Place of Eternal Trust (10:21-22)

  • The rich young ruler trusted in his perceived goodness and was tethered to his possessions.
  • Jesus compassionately calls the rich young ruler to abandon his heart idols and follow Him exclusively.
