The Rich Young Ruler - Today's Christian Videos
TRUTH Part 3 "Don't walk away!"
Pastor Bill Bush August 16, 2009
Big Idea: Replace Rules with a relationship!
THREE FALSE BELIEFS OF THE RICH YOUNG RULER:
FALSE Belief #1: What I have done is ENOUGH to have a right relationship with God.
It looked like the rich young ruler had all he needed:
He was rich,
He was young,
He was a ruler
He was HUMBLE
He was spiritually SENSITIVE
FALSE Belief #2: If what I have is not enough, I can do MORE to earn my way into heaven. (Isaiah 64:6 , Ephesians 2:8-10)
"But now God has shown us a different way of being right in His sight - not by obeying the law, but by the way promised in the Scriptures long ago. We are made right in God's sight when we trust in Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved the same way, no matter who we are or what we have done."
Romans 3:21, 22 (NLT)
FALSE Belief #3: I can trust Jesus with PART of my life and still be completely RIGHT with God.
"The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him." 2 Chronicles 16:9 (NLT)
It all comes down to a battle of wills:
What I want vs. what does GOD want?
How do you know if you have surrendered everything to Jesus Christ?
Jesus said, "mark My words, no one who sacrifices house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, land - whatever - because of Me and the message will lose out" Mark 10:29 (NLT)
Personal Prayer: God, today I give you ... anything ,anytime, anywhere, anyone...
at any cost!
