“The Seed on Rocky Ground”

Following Jesus is not for the faint of heart:

1. Joy which accompanies the reception of the message of salvation is often short-lived.

2. Trials and Persecution are inevitable, and they will test a person’s commitment to Christ and His word.

Thankfully we have a Savior–Jesus–who does not let us go. He carries us when we have no strength of our own, and His Spirit gives us the strength to trust Him daily.

“Wealthy, but not rich”

Jesus called people to follow Him. Why? Because He loves people and does not want them to perish. He is the only one who can give new life, satisfaction, and everlasting joy. In this encounter, the young rich man asks what he must do to inherit eternal life. Jesus’ answer reveals the man’s idolatry of riches- he went away sad, because he was unwilling to part with his possessions in order to follow Christ. Are you willing to offer your life to Jesus? He calls each of us to die daily, by taking up our cross and following Him.
