If you will, open your Bible to the eighteenth chapter of the gospel of Luke as we continue in our second message, dealing with the passage where the encounter between Jesus and the rich young ruler is described. Luke chapter 18 and actually it runs from verse 18 down through verse 30.
Just by way of a bit of a review from last Lord's day, in this passage we meet a young man. He is a young man by all human standards who is everything that a young man could be and should be. He is moral. He is religious. He is devout. He is a leader. He is prosperous. He is respected. He is influential. He has been elevated to a position in society of Israel reserved for those who are just the very, very best. He is the ruler of a synagogue and that would be an achievement of great note for a young man....
