Rev. Ken Lunsford said that this message from the Book of Mark comes both to a rich young ruler and to the disciples. The young man ran up to Jesus, knelt before Him, and asked “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus told the young ruler, “You lack one thing. You should go and sell all that you have and give it to the poor.” The fellow went away sorrowful because he had great possessions. The disciples were amazed at hearing this and asked Jesus, “Then who can be saved?” Jesus answered “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”
