Verse of the day:
...there is still one thing you haven’t done. Sell your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me. (Luke 18:22)
When it comes to our relationship with Jesus, he is never interested in the list of things that we are doing right. Jesus is always interested in the ONE thing, that is keeping us far away from him.
Here, Jesus tells this rich young ruler that there is ONE thing that he had not done yet. This one thing is what will determine his affection for Him, the seriousness of his devotion towards Him, and ultimately, his eternal life with Him. Unfortunately, that one thing was exactly what this young man was not willing to let go of.
What is the ONE thing that God is asking you to give up today? When you choose to give it up, it will bring your relationship that much closer to Christ. Let go of this one thing, and you will gain that much more.
