RE Verse reading–Mark 10:17-31 (day three) “Why do you call me good? No one is good by God alone” (vs 18) The Lord is not brushing aside a compliment. He is not quibbling over choice of words. He is pursuing this man, pressing him forward to a deeper understanding of God and himself. He is forcing this man to think! Interesting! God is not satisfied with some of my heart or part of my mind. Like a jealous lover ( read jealous LOVER) God knows that all of Him in all of me is the way of LIFE. If He is pressing us forward (right now, all of us) shouldn’t we join Him? “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness” (Matthew 5:6) “Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14) Forward. It is the direction of His love!
