USA – Sell all that you have, August 17, 2020

“Jesus…. said to him, ‘You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have…and come, follow Me.’ But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich.”
(Luke 18:22-23)el

Have your ever heard the Master say something very difficult to you? If you haven’t, I question whether you have ever heard Him say anything at all. Jesus says a tremendous amount to us that we listen to, but do not actually hear. And once we do hear Him, His words are harsh and unyielding. Jesus did not show the least concern that this rich young ruler should do what He told him, nor did Jesus make any attempt to keep this man with Him.
 

He simply said to him, ‘Sell all that you have…and come, follow Me.’ Our Lord never pleaded with him; He never tried to lure him – He simply spoke the strictest words that human ears have ever heard, and then left him alone.

You can’t be a “little bit” pregnant.

You can’t be a “little bit” bankrupt.

You can’t be a “little bit” honest.

You can’t be a “little bit” born again.

When the Body of Christ is obedient to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and then love our neighbor – “Everyone, Everything, Everyday”

“And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
(Acts 2:42-47)
