Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.”   Mark 10:21

 A few years ago, Master Card, the credit card company, had a popular series of ads on television. The ads went something like this: “Roses. Twenty-five dollars.” “Birthday card. Ten dollars.” “Birthday Cake. Fifty dollars.” Seeing the joy on your loved one’s face. Priceless.” These ads tried to show us that there are some things that money can’t buy, and how true it is.

Today, be AWAKENED! Nothing else really matters but Jesus Christ. In this life, you can’t hold on to anything, except on to Him.

Jesus spoke to the rich young ruler who wanted to inherit eternal life. The young man followed the law of Moses, was a good man and did what was expected of him—but when Jesus gave him the opportunity of a life time—to follow Him, live with Him and partake of what He had to offer,  the young man missed out on it all because he chose not to let go of what he had to follow Jesus Christ all the way.

What Jesus Christ offers us in Himself cannot be bought with money. It is priceless. Christ will call you to come follow Him, but it is your choice… what will you do?

Will you forsake all, counting everything else as secondary and follow Jesus, no matter the cost? I promise you, you will never be disappointed. HE is worth it!

It is Your Choice!
