The young man curiously ask Jesus (vs. 16), "...master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" Jesus answered and said unto him, "...if thou will enter into life, keep the commandments (which is listed in vs. 18). The young man thought that he had done everything that Jesus was asking him do. Confused he said, "I did all these things from my youth: what lack I yet?" (vs.20).
After hearing Jesus, the Bible tells us that the young man walked away sorrowfully: for he had great
possessions (vs. 22). Clearly, he loved his possessions more than Jesus. He valued his possessions more than people. All he had to do was to sell all that he had and give to the poor. Coming to Christ means that we must believe in Him, receive Him and embrace him as Lord and Savior of your life; to follow him means to observe and obey His commands, imitate Him in the exercise of grace and following Him where He leads you. Apparently this was the hardest thing for the rich young man to do, but it is what kept him from receiving eternal life.
because there are always more to receive , always more to do for God. So you could probably ask, "Lord what more can I do?"
Let us search ourselves today. Ask yourself or ask God, who knows you best,
"Lord, what lack I yet?"
