Wesley's Notes for Mark 10:24


10:24 Jesus saith to them, Children - See how he softens the harsh truth, by the manner of delivering it! And yet without retracting or abating one tittle: How hard is it for them that trust in riches - Either for defence, or happiness, or deliverance from the thousand dangers that life is continually exposed to. That these cannot enter into God's glorious kingdom, is clear and undeniable: but it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a man to have riches, and not trust in them. Therefore, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom.

    We must not think to ourselves how our lives shall be for God has us in his hand so we must follow him and trust him even in hard times

    "How hard it is for them that TRUST in riches to enter the Kingdom of God". Are we willing to give up all that we have and TRUST in God? It may not seem easy, but with God it is possible. All things were made by Him and He owns everything. Think about it.

    Ask for forgiveness every morning and night for any sin you could of committed. Praise His Holy Name!!! Walk with His Strength wherever you go. Be prepared to face any situation by going to Him first-- not the enemy's way of this world. Thank Him after for staying close. Think about the Blessings He had bestowed on you. Keep going after the impossible of this world-- for they are made possible!!!

    2 things about the blind man: First he cast away his garment knowing he could find it again because he knew Jesus would cure his blindness. And second: Jesus didn't tell him not to publish it, like he told others that he healed before. For now it didn't matter because his time had come.
  • Stanjett
    50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. 52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
