Counting Camels (Things I Wish Jesus Never Said Week 9)

July 8, 2019

Camels and needles... Perhaps one of the most misunderstood and toned down text in Scripture. Yet, Jesus is very clear about the dangers of materialism and greed and that salvation is ONLY received by faith thru grace (Eph. 2:8-9). In this message from the "Things I Wish Jesus Never Said" series, Pastor Joey looks at Mark 10:17-27 and this conversation with the rich young man. In this hyperbole, Jesus demonstrates the impossibility of salvation apart from God. It is God who saves. We cannot acquire salvation on our own. And ANY ATTEMPT will fall miserably short. Money can be a trap for it can distract us from the pursuit of Christ. Message preached on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at ParkerDC.
