Sermon  Sermon

Text:  Mark 10:17-31
"Seeking to obtain eternal life, like seeking to acquire any other possession, is a dead-end street.  Nothing will work.  We can neither bargain with God nor manipulate God.  

"Eternal life is a pure and undeserved gift from God that we receive when we have nothing to offer.  And since that is so, we can turn our gaze from heaven and stop wondering what awaits us there.  Instead, we can turn our eyes to this world, and follow Jesus wherever he takes us."
