"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain that which he cannot lose." I opened with a quote from another Jim, the martyr Jim Elliot, to contrast the Christian view against the view of the Rich Young Ruler. Jesus gave him a business proposition, if you will; an offer that a man of commerce should have been able to appreciate. Let's check that story again, as we continue through the Gospel of Mark. Here's Pastor Jim.
On the current broadcast, you are invited to listen to part 1 of 2 of Pastor Jim's message entitled The Test Of Faith - Part 2 from the series Mark: Gospel Of Action. Open your Bible to Mark 10; Luke 16 and follow along, or click on the scripture reference to read along with Pastor Jim online.
