Entering Into Life

“Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life.'”  Matthew 19:16
“So He said to him, “‘ . . .if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.'”  Matthew 19:17
“The young man said to Him, ‘All these things I have kept from my youth.  What do I still lack?'”  Matthew 19:21
“Jesus said to him, ‘. . .come, follow Me.'”  Matthew 19:21

Although not rich like the young ruler that came to Jesus, I knew I was lacking something.  And what I was living didn’t seem like life.

Thank You, Jesus, for being all I lack and filling me  with life. Here’s a simple poem . . .

In Order To Live

When we come
from the womb
we enter into
this world.
When we come
and follow Jesus
we enter into
life.
