Mark 10:17 - "As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. 'Good teacher,' he asked, 'what must I do to inherit eternal life?'"

You may know this account from the confrontation of the Rich Young Ruler and Christ. In this account we find the problem with most of man's attempts to be right with God. It is found in the young ruler's question.

He asks - "What must I do to inherit eternal life?" (Emphasis mine). The whole issue is "I." For most of us, we want to control the circumstances. We want to be in charge. So - it is "I."

The rich, young ruler wanted to do something. The majority of people today want to do something to be right with God. The whole point at Easter is that it is not what I do - but what He has done. Someone once said salvation was based upon "ne". Not what I do, but what He has done.

Today, share with someone what has been done, and invite them to accept the finished work.
