"I'VE DONE ABOUT ENOUGH" MATTHEW 19:16-17 and 20. The rich young ruler opened a conversation with Jesus by cutting to the point and asking Him a Powerful Question. Notice the rich young ruler response: "I have kept all these....What do I still lack?" He sensed that he was lacking something, or he needed to be told that he was OK, because he had done enough. Picture him in todays culture. He had youth, wealth, position, and power. However, he recognized that he simply did not possess the kind of life that satisfies here and now and gives hope for the life to come. Only real life (Eternal Life) satisfies forever.

"I CAN'T GO THAT FAR MATTHEW 19:21-22.  I can almost hear the rich young ruler Sighing. How would you respond if Jesus said the same to you?

DONE THAT-NOW WHAT? MATTHEW 19:27-29  Jesus ansswered  Peter's question with divine assurance that disciples would get rewards. However, there was a matter of timing.

According to verse 28, when would the rewards come. Jesus clearly stated that believers rewards would come in the Messianic Age, or the Regeneration when the Son of man shall sit upon in the thone of His Glory,or the renewal of all things. Despite Jesus clear answer, the question of WHAT DO WE GET? continues to be asked, some preach the prosperity gospel today, to decieve the saints to give more, this incorrectly promises that people who do good and make financial contributions to certain ministries will in turn recieve health, wealth, or power.

Jesus taught the gospel of the kingdom, and He said otherwise. We cannot earn eternal Life it is a free gift from Jesus through his sacrifice ....uhmmm.
