How Not To Be Disappointed

Are you willing to do what it takes, to give up everything for Jesus’ sake?
I was once offered a business opportunity that promised to make me a millionaire. Filled with excitement, I shared the good news with my friends and neighbours … only to find out shortly after that the deal had fallen through. I was completely shattered.
That story reminds me of the rich young man from the book of Mark who got all excited about what Jesus could do for him. Like me, he saw a bright future, and so he ran up to Jesus, falling on his knees in front of him.
But his bubble was soon burst as Jesus challenged him to sell everything and give it to the poor. This wasn’t what the man expected. The deal was off, and he walked away deflated.
Are you willing to do what it takes – to give up everything up for Jesus’ sake? God’s Word promises that if you do, you won’t walk away disappointed. You’ll inherit eternal life.
