LISTEN TO HIM--PART V
SERMON TITLE:  WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS
TEXT: LUKE 18:18-30

I) We have to give UP and give TO
Luke 18:22
22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing.
Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

II) We realize it’s not  EASY
Luke 18:24-25
24 Jesus looked at him and said, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! 25 Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

III) We know we can’t do it in our OWN  POWER
 Luke 18:27
27 Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”

IV) We know we’ll gain the best.
Luke18:29-30
29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God 30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age, and in the age to come eternal life.”
