What Must I Do?

Read Mark 10:1 through 11:33

As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (Mark 10:17).

Mr. Oprea stopped reading. “Anyone know the name of this story?” All but one in his preteen class raised their hands. He nodded and continued, “Can you tell me Jesus’ answer?”

Students responded with “Obeying the Law” and “Giving his riches away.” Then Mr. Oprea called on the student who had not raised her hand earlier. “Misty, what does it say at the end of verse 21?”

She answered timidly, “Then come, follow me?”

Mr. Oprea beamed. “Exactly! Obeying the law and selling his things weren’t the way to eternal life. Jesus’ answer was to follow Him.”

Sometimes, God asks us to rid ourselves of things, not because they are sinful or keeping us from heaven, but because they distract or hold us back from really running after Jesus.
