Sunday at New Home

Today at New Home Baptist Church Brother Dwayne Williams, a student at RTS, preached from Mark 10: 17-31. Some of the points that Bro. Dwayne brought out from the passage were

  1. Jesus Christ is accessible
    1. The rich young man runs up to Christ and asks him what he needs to do to inherit eternal life
      1. The young man was a Pharisee because he knew about eternal life and he thought that he had kept the law from his youth
  2. Salvation is possible only through God
    1. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God
      1. The disciples understood this to be a literal saying because they were astonished out of measure
    2. With men it is impossible, but with God all things are possible
  3. There is a cost to Christianity
    1. The rich young man walks away grieved because the cost was too high for him.
    2. When disciplining don’t forget to include the cost
      1. See John 15 – persecution
      2. Luke 9:23
  4. There is a great reward
    1. Eternal Live – Brother Dwayne made an interesting statement…”If you don’t like Christ now you will hate heaven”
  5. We are to be servants
    1. Many that are first shall be last; and the last first

 

Mark 10 17-31

17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?

27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,

30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
