But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
Would you ever bungee jump? What would it take for you to trust the bungee cord and harness enough to fall from a ledge, believing it would hold you? For most of us, the tension between fear and the desire to experience the exhilaration of the fall will be resolved in fear's favor, and we can only imagine what it would feel like to safely free fall.
When it comes to the invitation of Jesus in our lives it takes courage to step out in faith. The disciples left their career and families and planned futures to follow Jesus. Although they sometimes failed, Jesus patiently and lovingly led them.
Sadly, the rich young ruler could not see past the loss of his riches. The apprehension he felt in response to Jesus' invitation was resolved in fear's favor. He walked away from the Creator of the world who offered him more than he would have ever lost. What is Jesus inviting you to do? If we look past what he is asking and remember His power and faithfulness, we will soon discover the courage to take that leap of faith--knowing He will hold us firmly in His grasp.
