The Apostles’ CreedI believe in the resurrection of the body And the life everlasting Amen!
The Apostles’ CreedYou who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy! (Isaiah 26:19)O Death, where are your thorns? O Sheol, where is your sting? (Hosea 13:14) … to live is Christ and to die is gain! (Philippians 1:21)
My Hope in God “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men,and He will dwell among them, and they shall beHis people, and God Himself will be among them,and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes;and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” (Revelations 21:3-4)
The Rich Young RulerA ruler questioned Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.
The Rich Young Ruler You know the commandments, „DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, DO NOT MURDER, DO NOT STEAL, DONOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER.‟” And he said, “All these things I have kept from my youth.”
The Rich Young RulerWhen Jesus heard this, He said to him, “One thing you still lack; sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shallhave treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when he had heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich.
The Rich Young RulerAnd Jesus looked at him and said, “How hard it isfor those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom ofGod! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” They who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?”
So how is the passage relevant?I believe in the resurrection of the body And the life everlasting Amen!
(1) Those who only pay lip service to God Those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root; They believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away. (Luke 8:13) Not everyone who says to Me, „Lord, Lord,‟ will enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 7:21)
(2) Those choked by life’s worries and pleasures The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast .(Matthew 22:2) But the people paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business (Matthew 22:3)
The Rich Young RulerBut Jesus said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.”
(3) Those who are walking with the Lord And He said to them, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who will not receive many times as much at this time and in the age to come, eternal life.”
(3) Those who are walking with the Lord Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1-2)
