Scripture: Matthew 19:16-25

  1. Introduction—If Jesus were to come this afternoon, would He be coming for you?
  2. Matthew 19:16–25—Rich young ruler—good person—who can be saved?
  3. Who Will Be Saved?
    1. 1 Timothy 1:15—Jesus came to save sinners
    2. Guilty of enough sins?—1 John 1:8, 9
    3. Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
    4. Where does sin come from?—Exodus 20:3, 5b—any person, place, or thing we put above God’s will is our god
    5. How do we receive God’s חֶסֶד?—next verse, v. 6—define חֶסֶד: faithfulness, kindness, grace (חֶסֶד is similar to בְּרִית, except that בְּרִית comes from a ceremony, while חֶסֶד “results fm. closer relation betw. parties, but the obligations are largely the same”1)—love God and keep His commandments
    6. How do we love God?—John 14:15: “If you love me, you will obey what I command.”
    7. How do we do that?—Matthew 22:35–40—first four commandments: love God—last six: love others
    8. What does love for God and our neighbor look like?—Matthew 6:14–15—if we love, we will forgive
    9. Luke 7:36–50—Jesus anointed
      1. Parable
      2. verse 50
      3. Either:
        1. We pay the price of sin, forfeiting eternal life; or
        2. We accept God’s forgiveness, and forgive ourselves and others
      4. This becomes a loop, allowing us to love God, ourselves, and others
  4. Prayer
