"...What good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?" Matthew 19:16

 This was the question a RICH YOUNG RULER asked the LORD JESUS. In other words he is asking what can I do to have eternal life?
Most times we assume that riches is the ultimate accomplishment in life. We assume that when we become rich, all our problems will be solved. This is mirage. Some play the lottery, some labor from dawn to night in quest for a better life we think more money will afford us. 
But here is a RICH, INFLUENTIAL, YOUTHFUL LEADER asking about ETERNAL LIFE! Why is he asking this All important question? Because regardless of the riches and influence, he knew he didn't have ETERNAL LIFE! He had riches and influence but did not have ETERNAL LIFE! He was religious. He was a morally sound young man but he knew deep down within his soul that he was not saved. He was a lost soul. He had everything money could buy but he didn't have ETERNAL LIFE! 

And so he swallowed his pride, took time of his busy schedule to seek for Jesus, so as to ask Him, how he may obtain Eternal life. He was more than willing on this day to address the state of his spiritual life! And he went in search of an answer, he went in search of Jesus Christ!

When he found Jesus, he received answer to his question. Jesus Christ the LORD is the answer to your quest and eternal questions! Money is not the answer! Lottery winners end miserably! Millionaires commit suicide! Money can be an answer to physical and material needs but not THE ANSWER to your spiritual need and most importantly ETERNAL LIFE! ONLY GOD through Christ is the ANSWER!

Bottom line, Jesus the answer told the rich young man to give up EVERYTHING and follow HIM (THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, THE ANSWER.)

The Lord asked him to give up his idols (his riches became his idol), give up his sins, religiosity and come follow HIM (the Messiah, the Savior). You want ETERNAL LIFE, that is what you need to do!

What became of this young man, we don't know! Only eternity will tell! All we know is that he went away sorrowful because he had so much trust in his "great possessions" he could not stand the thought of giving them up for ETERNAL LIFE!

Somehow, he could not afford to give up EARTHLY LIFE for ETERNAL LIFE!

But simple math could have helped him! Earthly life is worth 70 or 80 years if you live that long. 

Eternal life begins from when you surrender your life to Christ into eternity that will last not  for 1,000 years, 10,000 years...but forever in heaven.

" but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. " John 4:14

Water is a very essential commodity of life. We depend on water daily to exist. Anytime there is scarcity of water, life becomes very challenging. People can travel miles to get water. There is no life without water. 

There are different kinds of water, salty water, muddy water, contaminated water, spring water, clean water and there is THE LIVING WATER. 

The Living water is the water you drink and you thirst no more. The Living water is the water that you can't find anywhere else but in Jesus ; only Jesus have and can give the Living water. The Living water does not just quench your thirst but becomes a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. I love this water. 

Have you drank of this water? If you have not drank the Living water, friend, you have not drank water. Your life cannot remain the same when you drink the Living water. As the name implies it is the Living water and that is what it does, it gives life. The physical water we drink keep our bodies hydrated and alive but the living water keeps the Soul alive. Therefore, the Soul that hasn't drank the Living water is dead. 

This living water is available for whoever. Jesus said,"...whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him... "

 If you really need this water, the Living water, you can ask the Lord Jesus today, right now, " Lord give me drink, that I may thirst no more. "
