"Jesus looked straight at him with love and said,
'You need only one thing. Go and sell all you have
and give the money to the poor, and you will have
riches in heaven; then come and follow me.' When
the man heard this, gloom spread over his face, and
he went away sad, because he was very rich.
Jesus looked around at his disciples and said to them,
'How hard it will be for rich people to enter the kingdom
The disciples were shocked at these words, but
Jesus went on to say, 'My children, how hard it is
to enter the Kingdom of God! It is much harder
for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God than
for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.'
At this the disciples were completely amazed and asked
one another, 'Who, then, can be saved?'
Jesus looked straight at them and answered, 'This
is impossible for humans beings but not for God;
everything is possible for God."
(Mark 10:21 - 27 GNT)
"The promises of the Lord can be trusted;
they are as genuine as silver refined
seven times in the furnace."
(Psalms 12:6 GNT)
1. Meditate on God's Promises.
2. Plead the Promises at the throne of Grace.
3. Act in Faith that God Will Perform His Promises.
