Re: Verse reading – Luke 18:9-17 (day four)
The rich young ruler came to Jesus with a valid question…what must I do to be saved?  Whether he was sincere or not, he needed to know the answer.  Jesus gave him the general answer, but then pinpointed the need in the young man’s life.  He needed to give his entire life to Jesus.  When the rich young ruler heard Jesus’ answer, he was faced with a choice.  We all have them.  When confronted with the truth of Jesus’ response, the young man had to decide if he was willing to pay the price.  Just knowing the answer is not enough.  We must choose whether we will follow Jesus or not.  The pull of the world may be great.  We may have riches, status, authority, or maybe just pride…but we all have to make a choice.  The choice we make in answer to this question is our most important choice in our whole life.  Will you follow Jesus?
