Today, Pastor Michael Hodge continues in the book of Mark, chapter 10 verses 17-27. We come to the verses where the young rich man claims he has done everything to qualify for getting into heaven. And Jesus says he has done well, except for one thing. He commands him to sell all that he has, give everything to the poor, and follow him. What happens next is a lesson for all who are rich, and most of us, even the so-called "middle class", are very wealthy compared to the rest of the world. Everyone isn't called to give up all their possessions. If we had none, we'd have nothing to give financially. So, what did Jesus mean? Not to make money our God. Listen to Pastor Hodge expound on these verses.
We also had our special music, done by Roger and others, "Wonderful, Merciful Savior". We hope you enjoy it.
And, we apologize, but the new battery in our pastor's microphone mysteriously died towards the end of the sermon, but you'll get the gist of it with what is available. We apologize for the inconvenience.

And we hope you have a great week in Christ Jesus!
