TALK: Consider some of these ideas
“But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.” (Mark 10:31)
A rich young man asked Jesus how he might inherit eternal life, perhaps believing he was already on the right track. When Jesus challenged him to sell his possessions, he recoiled. But eternal life isn’t something we can earn, It is gift from God for whom “all things are possible.”
- What amount of money does it take for a human to survive?
- How can we reconcile that with the notion that earthly possessions are not the way to eternal life?
- What would you struggle to give up if Jesus asked you to?
- Do you think miracles healings can happen today? What makes it possible? Is healing with medicine a miracle?
PRAY: Saving Lord, you know there is nothing we can do to save ourselves. make us joyful in your promise of eternal life, which is ours because you choose to give it, for the sake of Jesus Christ, Amen.
BLESS: May God fill you with the peace that fills your heart!
