The Rich Young Man

Sermon of Sunday, October 11, 2009

Preacher: Francis Noordanus

Scriptures: Mark 10:17-31


The story of the Rich Young Man is familiar as is Jesus' message to him.  Is this call for radical trust and other discipleship calls of Jesus simply too much for ordinary people?  Why does he call people to seemingly impossible steps?  Maybe he knows something we don't?  The Rich Young man provides an opportunity to see the Wisdom of Jesus for people who have everything but know they lack something.  In this sermon Francis seeks to break through the fog of familiarity and recover some of the edge of what Jesus is saying to people like us who have much wealth.
