Remind Me • Heather Gunter

John 9:1-3 (NRSV) - As he walked along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was born blind so that God’s works might be revealed in him."

We all know that the Scriptures say that His ways are higher than our own, but when we find ourselves surrounded by unfavorable circumstances, do we still find peace and comfort in these words? Today, I want to share some of my story with you, and what God has taught me through my personal times of grief and loss. We cannot escape the pains of life, but we can be certain that God is at work to redeem even the most hopeless and painful of circumstances that we may face.

Getting the A and Failing the Course

October 12, 2018

Mark 10:17-22

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’”

20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

CONSIDER THIS

The more I read this text the less sure I am that Jesus actually wanted this man to sell everything he had and give it to the poor.

And the more I read this text the more sure I am that what Jesus most wanted this man to do was to follow him.
