“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” - Matthew 4:19
Go Thy Way Jesus and the Rich Young Ruler
When an event in Scripture is recorded once, it’s clearly important. This event was mentioned in three of the four gospels! This event took place shortly before the Lord Jesus Christ made His final journey to Jerusalem, there to give His life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45) and three days later rise from the dead. In fact, this may be one of the last conversations or encounters with a seeker prior to Him going to Calvary.
The text is from Mark 10:17-22 (key verse is 21): "Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, 'One thing thou lackest: Go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven. And come, take up the cross, and follow Me.'"
