Rich Young Ruler:

  • Money was about worship.
  • Money determined his direction and ultimately his destination.

Main Idea:
Jesus is to be the Lord of your life.

  1. Don’t be blinded by self-righteousness.  ( Luke 18:18-21)


  1. Don’t be imprisoned by earthly possessions.  ( Luke 18:22-23)

    • And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, ‘You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come FOLLOW me!” 
      Mark 10:21 

    • Our relationship with Jesus should totally transform our relationship to our money

    • God is the owner and we are the managers.

    • We could keep everything and it would still be God’s.


  1. Don’t be seduced by personal comforts.  (Luke 18:24-30)

    • Jesus is Lord of all or He is not Lord at all!
