89. What Must I do? – Mark 10:17

In our last episode, in welcoming the children, Jesus gave an important lesson in what God is like. In today’s episode, Jesus is going to give us an important lesson in how to be saved.As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”This seems to be a pretty straight-forward question, doesn’t it? But Jesus knows that for these people, it’s far from simple.This was, in fact the central question of the Jewish religion, which was all about being worthy of eternal life through doing. The Jewish religious teachers were always arguing about what exactly you had to do, and coming up with lists and rules for things to do, so that God might consider you worthy of eternal life.But the problem with this man’s question was that Jesus knew that being saved wasn’t achieved by doing anything at all. It was about believing. It was about trusting. So, it will be important to see how Jesus answers this man’s question – because really, it’s our question as well.Challenge yourself. Where did you get your ideas about salvation from? Do you see religion more as a checklist or as a relationship? Keep watching this series to see Jesus’ important answer to this man’s question.
