Ultimate Purpose of Life
This week, Pastor Andrea Fluegel and Rachel Strong discuss Jesus' encounter with a rich, young man. The man asks the ultimate question that we all have on our hearts and in our minds, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?" The man doesn’t like Jesus’ answer. The call to discipleship is not just another obligation because it involves a cost. The fishermen leave their boat and nets, the tax collector leaves his table, and even Peter leaves his false conceptions and perspective about the Messiah. The kingdom of God topples our cherished priorities and demands of his disciples new priorities, obligations, and allegiances. How would you respond to Jesus' command to "Come and follow him?" Would you leave your priorities, obligations and allegiances?
