The message this week came from the story of Jesus’ encounter with the rich young ruler in Mark 10. The conversation about how to obtain eternal life ended in the young man’s rejection of Jesus’ offer. It is a sad story, but one with lessons for us:
#1: Not everyone who hears the message of how to live forever will accept it, right away or later. Our responsibility is to be faithful.
#2: Do you have love in your heart for the lost?
#3: Are you preparing yourself to engage in discussions of faith with seekers?

1 Peter 3:15 “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”
