Matthew 19…. He walked away sadly.
Remember, there was a wealthy man who asked Jesus to tell him how to get eternal life.
Eventually, Jesus tells the man to sell all his stuff, give the money to the poor, and follow Jesus.
He walked away sadly.
How sad! What the man was really asking was, “How can I be with God forever?”
And Jesus, being God, said, “Come be with me.”
But in that moment, the man became sad. He had grown to like his stuff more than wanting to be with God.
What are you unwilling to let go of? Why?
Don’t walk away sad. The most amazing thing you will ever do in your life is give it to God! Immanuel, God is With Us! Don’t miss what’s (who’s) right in front of you.
Peace in our journeys,
Pastor Steve Melde
