If you’re serious about following Christ

Matthew 19:16-22 tells the story of the rich young ruler. He asks what good deed he needed to do to have eternal life. 

Jesus makes it clear about the commandments and the young man feels pretty good.

Then… the mistake. If we’re really serious about following Jesus, we should ask this question… but we’re just not ready for the response Jesus gives us!

The young man asks, “What do I still lack?”

If we’re serious about following Christ, we need to ask that question. The problem is Jesus will readily respond to our deepest issues!

So… most believers quit asking that question. We stay satisfied right where we stand… or lay.
