Sermon Title: The Rich Young Ruler

Scripture: Mark 10:17–31

 

This week, Pastor David shared how Jesus instructs us to check our hearts and see where our true security is found.

  • The love of God gives us freedom.
  • Keeping God as the center of our existence prevents us from the fear of losing worldly possessions.

GOING DEEPER:

  • What is in your “hurricane container?” What are the things you can’t live without?
  • You can have it all by our culture’s standards and truly have nothing of ultimate value. How have you found this to be true in your own life?
  • How are the “gods” of possessions, position, power, passions, or a person calling you away from allowing God alone to be the center of your life?
  • Ask yourself these three questions to help see where you might be developing unhealthy allegiances or attachments:
    • What or who do you worry the most about? 
    • Where do you find jealousy and envy arising most often in your life? 
    • Where do you feel most often wronged and over-looked?

ADDITIONAL DISCOVERY:

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  ~ Isaiah 41:10
