Mark 10:21 “Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.”
Are you a Christian? Did you say yes? Where’s the evidence? In our text today Jesus told the young enquirer to go sell it all – give it all to the poor and come follow me… Question: how much are you prepared to give up for Jesus? The 1922 hymn by Rhea F. Miller sums up how important Jesus must become to the one who would claim to be a follower… verse one throws up a challenge to the modern day Christian… I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold; I’d rather be His than have riches untold; I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands; I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand What would you rather have? Think it through and I will catch you on the rebound! Aunty M.
