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.
