In this sermon, Pastor Jake teaches on three conversations in the text that show us the upside-down values of the Kingdom of God compared with the kingdom of this world. Is your allegiance to Jesus merely surface-level? Does the pull of wealth and the things of this earth hold you back from complete commitment to Jesus? God's Word urges you to stop living for the things of this life, stop loving the world, and pursue Jesus with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.
I. Jesus' Conversation with a Wealthy Stranger (vv. 17–22) II. Jesus' Follow-Up Conversation with the Disciples (vv. 23–27) III. Jesus' Wrap-Up Conversation with Peter (vv. 28–31)
