  • Bible Text: Mark 10:23-31

    23 And Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How difficult it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 And they were exceedingly astonished, and said to him, “Then who can be saved?” 27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” 28 Peter began to say to him, “See, we have left everything and followed you.” 29 Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, 30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

    Questions to help us go deeper

    Mark 10:23-25

    • What can wealth do to a person that makes it almost impossible to enter the kingdom of God?

    Mark 10:26-27

    • Why is it that salvation is impossible without God? How much do I depend on God for people’s salvation? Are there people in my life I have deemed “impossible” to bring to salvation? Take time to pray for them.

    Mark 10:28-31

    • In response to Peter’s claim that he left everything to follow him, Jesus gives a three-fold promise. Consider the things included in Jesus’ promise, and how this compares with my experience and expectation of following Jesus.
