Welcome back City Group Leaders! This week we pick back up with Jesus in Mark 10. He encounters a rich, young man who had everything but eternal life. Jesus pinpoints his idol (money), which is one of the most alluring temptations for all of us. The young man went away sad because he would not give up his precious hard-earned cash.
"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?" - Mark 8:36
Following Jesus is a full surrender to a conquering king; a non-negotiable deal. Neither that wealthy young man, nor any of us can ever be good enough to earn heaven or bring any terms to the bargaining table. Following Jesus, is a perpetual 'yes' to whatever God would call us to give or do. Challenge your groups to consider what Jesus would have them give up or boldly do to follow Him fully in life.
