Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 19:16-26
The story of the rich young man who came to Jesus thinking that he was a good man, teaches the children that being a good man does not allow a person to have the eternal life. Jesus’s answer showed that the young man did not keep the commandments perfectly.
In order to have eternal life we have to be perfect. It is impossible because we are all sinners. The only way to get eternal life is by trusting Jesus as the one who have kept all the laws perfectly for us.
Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”
