Unlimited: What Must I Do?

Unlimited What Must I Do

As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life” (Mark 10:17, NIV)?

Jesus welcomed the children and gave an important lesson in what God is like.

Jesus gave us an important lesson in how to be saved.

This seems to be a pretty straight-forward question, doesn’t it? But Jesus knows that for these people, it’s far from simple.

This was, in fact the central question of the Jewish religion, which was all about being worthy of eternal life through doing. The Jewish religious teachers were always arguing about what exactly you had to do, and coming up with lists and rules for things to do, so that God might consider you worthy of eternal life.

But the problem with this man’s question was that Jesus knew that being saved wasn’t achieved by doing at all. It was about believing. It was about trusting.

So, it will be important to see how Jesus answers this man’s question.

Eli’s Reflection: Challenge yourself. Where did you get your ideas about salvation from? Do you see religion more as a checklist or as a relationship? Keep working through this devotional to see Jesus’ important answer to this man’s question.

Recent weeks have been an exceptional struggle that has badly affected me. All I knew to do was pray and hang on. I would be nothing without belief in Jesus, without placing my faith in Father God and trusting that, regardless of how I think and feel - regardless of what others think and do or how they see me - or what the situation is, the bottom line has always been and is: I believe. I believe that God will always honour my belief in Him, my love for Him, my faith in Him and sirt things out. He has me inscribed in the palm of His hand. I have Him cut deeply into my heart. Yesterday, after I felt like losing my mind - something I long ago asked him to protect when I asked Him to not let me believe in any other god - after weeks of an increasingly worsening situation in which I had noone to turn to - that I should be accustomed to - but for some reason this challenge was beyond me - I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. I knew He would be at work but I knew that Satan would be at work too. While I was encouraging others dealing with other horrific situations and could see hiw Gid was using terruble situations to reveal Himself, I writhed in agony in tears until yesterday when like the previous week my situation made me physically ill and mentally ill. I was unabke to drive to a doctor or call for help. There was noone to call. I spent days in bed sobbing and crying out to the Father, seeing Christ crucified through Good News Unlimited emails, seeing myself in relation to the Saviour. Seeing the truth if my own life and soul. The one and only thing I know 100% plus is that, I can never not believe. Am I worthy if such a great Love? I feel I am not. Abba Father. Daddy. Forgive me any and all my wrong doing, my ignorance, my struggle to find and define and be myself in this world. Thank You for letting me see the light at the end if the tunnel, for enabling me to weigh up and make a fair decision for others and myself. The Light shines upon this darkened world from the Cross.
