Empty Hands . . . to Receive and to Respond

Launch Sermon Player

When your hands are full of things, it’s difficult to receive something that’s offered to you.
That’s the problem with the man in our text. He wants eternal life. Jesus offers him eternal life. But he is unable to receive it because his hands are full. In his case, with earthly possessions. Riches. They are the most important things in his life.
The key question for us is; are our hands full (partially full) of things that are preventing us from receiving all the blessings that God has to offer?
