TOPIC:
ATTACHMENT TO THINGS

Memory Verse:
Matthew 19:21

MESSAGE:
Our lesson today is quite an interesting one. Here, we see a young rich man express a genuine hunger to have eternal life. It dawned on him that life on earth is not all there is. Life on earth is only a preparation for the hereafter. He seemed to be aware that there are two ultimate destinies for all human beings: eternal life and eternal doom. And he preferred the former.

More interesting in the whole story was the fact that he was wise enough to locate Jesus, as if he knew that only Jesus has what it takes to offer eternal life to anyone. So he came to him, asking, “What good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?

Discerning that this young man had failed to “Have no other gods before HIM” (Exodus 20:3), Jesus told him to sell his possessions, give them to the poor and follow Him. Sadly enough, the man walked away, unable to take the step that would free him from bondage. His attachment to his possessions robbed him the privilege of receiving “Zoe” abundant Life.

Do not let things of life keep you away from the life that Christ brought. Today, there are things you must give away; there are things you must detach from in order to be free to follow Him . Do it and there will be no cause for regret.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
What you are willing to walk away from determines what you are ready to walk into.

PRAYER:
Lord, deliver me from worldly obsessions in Jesus’ name Amen.

BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
