Of all the questions that could ever be asked, of all the questions that could ever be answered, none is more important than this one. What shall I do to inherit eternal life? That is the most important question that can be asked and answered.
Everyone of us is Eternal. Everyone of us is immortal. No soul ever goes out of existence. Our bodies die, but our souls go on forever.
The only question is where will we spend eternity. This is the most important question that can ever be asked.
Today, let's look at Mark chapter 10 and see how Jesus answers this question. This is a wonderful account of the rich young ruler. He comes to Jesus, he says, “What do I do to have eternal life?” which is a great question. “How do I get into heaven?” is what he’s asking.
So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. " verse 18. Jesus is correcting his understanding of good.
And Jesus says to him, “Do you know the law?” verse 19. “Do not murder, commit adultery, steal, bear false witness, defraud; and then honor your father and your mother.” So He gives him the law.
