THE YOUNG MAN’S RESPONSE
1. JESUS’ INVITATION
He was offered Jesus’ love.
He was offered a sanctuary.
He was offered a Savior and salvation.
2. HIS RESPONSE
He failed to see himself in need of a Savior.
He held fast to his earthly goods instead of the gift Jesus offered.
He walked away in sorrow not realizing his sorrow was just beginning.
