    Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him LOVED him. John14:21 He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me and he that loveth me shall be LOVED of my Father and I will LOVE, him and will manifest myself to him.
  • Eric
    verses 42-45, contrast these with Acts 6:2. The twelve really messed up here. They reverted back to their old way of thinking and not only missed out on a blessing, but set a standard and a precedent that has lived on to modern times. This precedent is WRONG! To be the greatest of all you MUST be the servant of all. These are the words of Jesus.
  • BSP
    Verses 21 and 22: The rich young man placed a greater importance on material things than being a follower of Christ. He missed out on spiritual blessings because he had too great of an attachment to material things.

    It is easy to get distracted by everyday events. We are reminded of going back to the source of our strength which is our Lord Jesus. In a glimpse of an eye, God can change anything.

    It is that Simple.. With God All Things Are Possible, All Things Achievable and With God All Things Are Receivable!
