Passage: Mark 10:23-24
Series: General
Duration: 21 mins 34 secs
Human nature makes it hard to enter the Kingdom of God. First, it's hard to avoid thinking we're "pretty good" and don't really need saving (we prefer a celestial Santa Claus who grants wishes). Then it's hard to avoid thinking we can save ourselves with some kind of self-improvement programme. As the saying goes,we need to let go, and let God. But, as the rich young man found to his sorrow, it's hard when in truth we have money or other gods ahead of Jesus. [Organ/choir - Pentecost 20]
