Sell Everything – Bible Study


Mark 10:17 – …”Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone…

From Ravi Zacharias, I understood this very principle: Jesus starts his answer with a question. A question that will of course make Nicodemus have to decide: Either I am really seeking an answer, or I am just fooling myself because I have already made up my mind. If Jesus is good, and only God is good (specially for a Pharisee) then there is no other choice: Jesus is God. And if you are asking God for the answer, are you willing to listen to it?

We are the same way: We often come to God with an expectation of our duty and a place for him in our hearts. When he asks from us EVERYTHING, we walk away troubled: ALL OR NOTHING, SELL EVERYTHING.
