In Mark 10, a young wealthy man came to Jesus to ask about eternal life. Jesus said to him “One thing you lack, Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” The Bible says “At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.”
The point of the story isn’t that you can’t be rich and go to heaven. The point is that you have to let go of EVERYTHING to follow Jesus and find eternal life.
What are you holding on to? Is it money? It’s great to have money, and even to have lots of it. But if you haven’t RELEASED it to him, it’s holding you back. Other things that can hold us back are pride, popularity, greed, sexual sin, materialism, anger, and ANYTHING that God would want you to release.
What’s holding you back? Let it go today!

AWESOME POST PASTOR RANDY!!! Why do we hang on to things that will rust and ruin, when God’s word plainly states in Matthew 6:19-20 that we are to store up treasures in heaven, ones that will not ruin or rust away! Thanks again for reminding us that we are to give it ALL to Him, and don’t hold back not ONE thing from God our Father.
I like your post .
Thanks George! Thanks Francine!
