MESSAGE NOTES

Sunday, November 27: Saying Yes to the Greatest Invitation of All – Mark 10:17-31 NIV

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.
23) Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
24) The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25) 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.” 26) The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” 27) Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
28) Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!”
29) “Truly I tell you,”Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel30will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.31But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

 

Mark 10: 17-31 NIV

We have all been impacted by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the devastation we are witnessing every day. The horrible images showing the loss of innocent life and the utter destruction of cities, towns and villages of Ukraine are overwhelming. Various organizations now estimate that more than 10 million Ukrainians, roughly one third of the entire population, have been displaced and the refugees crossing in other surrounding countries is now close to 4 million.

All of us are asking how we can help. The first priority is fervent prayer for the people of Ukraine. In addition, New Hope would like to recommend donations to three organizations that stand out as they offer Christ centered help for the millions fleeing their country, and thank you for your prayers and contributions.
