Are you Near or are you In?

Are you Near or are you In?

Loving your neighbor as yourself and loving God with all of yourself is a tall task that will eventually crush you. If you’re trying to do it on your own you’ll end up being either puffed up or tuckered out. But when you realize that you don’t naturally have that type of love power within it’s an indication that you’re not far from understanding the gospel. That’s exactly where the scribe in Mark 12 finds himself, not far from the kingdom of God. If he would take one more step and come to believe in Jesus, as his Savior and Lord, then he’d move from being “not far from” to being one “inside” the Kingdom of God. | Outline: [I] A Classic Question (vs. 28) [II] A Brilliant Answer (vs. 29-31) [III] A Wise Affirmation (vs. 32-33) [IV] A Perfect Response (vs. 34)
