When the Gospel of Mark tells the story about the young man who asks Jesus what he needed to do to inherit eternal life, Mark includes one detail that the other Gospels don't mention. Mark says that Jesus "loved him..." (Mark 10:21). Jesus then invited the young man to take the next steps towards discipleship. 

Our discipleship does not begin with us; it begins with God, who loves us and invites us into relationship with Him.  

Sadly for the young man, he was not able to embrace the love that Jesus offered--the young man was holding on to other things. I like to think, however, that there could be another chapter to the young man's story that Mark does not provide. Impossible? I hope you will join us this Sunday as we talk about the impossible possibility! See you in church!

All Things Are Possible With God
