IF YOU WANT TO ENTER LIFE
One day, a man ran up to Jesus and asked this question: ‘What can I do to have eternal life?’ That is a big question, a question which we all want to know the answer. ‘What can I do to have eternal life?’ Imagine, having eternal life! But I am afraid that you might not like the answer. As we will see, the answer Jesus gave sticks to our throat like a fish bone.
This incident is recorded in three gospels: Matthew, Mark and Luke. We will read the account in the gospel of Matthew. Matthew 19:16-21.
