Eternal Life

Matthew 19:16-22 (NRSV)
Keeping the commandments

Then someone came to him and said, "Teacher, what good deed must 

I do to have eternal life?" And he said to him, "Why do you ask 
me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you wish to 
enter into life, keep the commandments." He said to him, "Which ones?" 
And Jesus said, "You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; 
You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; Honor your father 
and mother; also, You shall love your neighbor as yourself." The young 
man said to him, "I have kept all these; what do I still lack?" Jesus said
to him, "If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give 
the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then 
come, follow me." When the young man heard this word, he went away 
grieving, for he had many possessions.

If you have questions about how to become a friend and follower of 

Jesus, please see the devotion entitled, “Come to Jesus”
