One Thing

Mark 10:17-22

Simplicity is a virtue that has been lost in today's high tech world. Items that used to be relatively simple to operate or repair now require specialist who are equipped with exactly the right tools and knowledge to repair. Things that used to take only a handshake and a smile now take several volumes of contracts, disclosures, and verifications. Any of us who have ever had to deal with the government knows the mountain of paperwork and red tape that is nearly insurmountable.

However, there is one thing that is still simple. There is one thing that, over the years, has not become increasingly hard to understand. That one thing is the Word of God. In the Scriptures we find the phrase "one thing" used quite often. This morning I want to bring a message on just "one thing". It will not be a difficult message to understand because it comes from God's Word. God gave His Word in such a manner that all can understand.

I. One Thing Lacking. cf Mark 10:17-22

II. One Thing Needful. cf Luke 10:38-42

III. One Thing Desired. cf. Psalm 27:4

Conclusion: ONE THING: Lacking, Needful, and Desired. If you are without Jesus Christ as your personal Savior today...that is the one thing lacking in your life. Come to Jesus in total obedience and be saved today.

If you are a Christian, but you have neglected your time with the Lord. The one thing needful in your life today is to come and spend some time at His feet listening to His Word.

What is your desire this morning? If you could have "one thing" today, what would it be? Come this morning and find that Jesus Christ can meet your need today.
