  Day 20  

Matthew 19:16-30
16 Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, "Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?"
17 "Why do you ask me about what is good?" Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments."
18 "Which ones?" the man inquired. Jesus replied, "'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony,
19 honor your father and mother,' and 'love your neighbor as yourself.'"
20 "All these I have kept," the young man said. "What do I still lack?"
21 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, "Who then can be saved?"
26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
27 Peter answered him, "We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?"
28 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.
30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.


In the passage above we see Jesus giving three challenges to a young man who wanted eternal life: 'Go, sell…. and give'. Today, maybe Jesus has similar challenges for us.

Go - be willing to identify the things that are preventing us from being the man/woman God wants us to be. What's stopping you from being spiritual? Where is God calling you and you are not heeding that call?

Sell - get rid of whatever is preventing Jesus from being the Lord of your life. Eg throwing out books/magazines or websites or social media that is drawing you away from God.Make time to invest in His word, prayer, investing time with disciples and non-disciples.

Give - change the orientation of your life so that you no longer are at the centre. God designed us to be other-centred not self-centred. You will function best when you are more concerned about others than you are about yourself.

Sometimes we get discouraged that we can't change the world and let go of the smaller things that are before us. 'You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things'( Matthew 25:21)


Go and do something that you have been wanting to do but not done. Stop doing something that you have been wanting to stop but not stopped.
