05/16/13 DDD The Character of Jesus Part 6–Goodness

May 16th, 2013

David looks at Matthew 19:16-21 in this David's Daily Devotional. It says:

16 Someone came to Jesus with this question: “Teacher,[f] what good deed must I do to have eternal life?”

17 “Why ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question—if you want to receive eternal life, keep[g] the commandments.”

18 “Which ones?” the man asked.

And Jesus replied: “‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. 19 Honor your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

20 “I’ve obeyed all these commandments,” the young man replied. “What else must I do?”

21 Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

David speaks to us about idols and the necessity of making Jesus number one in our lives. We are looking at Christ's character and how He lived His life because He is our example to follow.
