What Would You Do?

But when the young man heard that saying he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions – Matthew 19:22

Our lives are filled with responses we make towards God. Once God makes Himself known to us, what we do next is our decision. Our reaction reflects what we believe about Him. The rich, young ruler possibly lived a moral life. He was well versed in Scripture and the laws of God. But his response to Jesus’ invitation clearly showed that although he possessed a head knowledge of the teachings of God, he did not know God in an experiential way that could be demonstrated by a response of faith. Whenever the Lord speaks to us, it will require an adjustment in our life to be in line with His. This truth can dramatically affect our prayer life. Every time we pray we must be aware that if God answers our prayer and reveals His will to us, it will immediately require us to   reorient our life to His will. Each time we read our Bible, we must be prepared to obey what God tells us. If we were faced with the same question as the rich, young ruler, what adjustments are we willing to make in order to obey Him? What would you do?
