Immortal Invisible God Only Wise V.U. 264
SCRIPTURE READING: Mark 10: 17 - 31
As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and
asked him, 'Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?' Jesus
said to him, 'Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You
know the commandments: "You shall not murder; You shall not commit
adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall
not defraud; Honour your father and mother." ' He said to him, 'Teacher, I
have kept all these since my youth.' Jesus, looking at him, loved him and
said, 'You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the

who can be saved?' Jesus looked at them and said, 'For mortals it is
impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.'
Peter began to say to him, 'Look, we have left everything and followed
you.' Jesus said, 'Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or
brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, for my sake
and for the sake of the good news, who will not receive a hundredfold now
in this age-houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and fields,
with persecutions-and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are
first will be last, and the last will be first.'
