CHAPTER ONE

 

"TEACHER, WHAT GOOD MUST I DO TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE." Christ and His Answer to the Young Man.

Christ gave an answer which showed the meaning of life, the purpose of life and the way of life that is capable of satisfying the desires of the human heart. And He left His Church to teach, to guide and to lead all men to the truth, the way and the life.

This is the question all men are asking. The young man sensed that there was a connection between moral good and eternal life. He had obeyed the law; but in Christ's presence he felt more was now required.

What was Christ's answer to the young man? "Only God is good. So learn from God what is the good that leads to eternal life; because men, being sinners, will more often lead you to what is bad.

"You shall be holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy." To have eternal life, we must be holy, like God, and the process of being holy is called the MORAL LIFE.
