Current address of Christianity is believers without bearing the cross.  Modern believers wants  only salvation that will save them from future judgment  while living their life without self denial. If you have anything that you love more than the Lord, that will make you deny your Christian identity at the end of this age.  Many Korean pastors worshipped Japanese deity during Japanese ruling over korea, in order to keep their pastor's position, house, business relationship.  Give all to the Lord immediately.  You need to have a mindset of stewardship, ready to give up everything for the Lord. What is important is your current state of faith, not what you have done in faith in the past.  only your current state of aligning your life with belief will assure your satefy and victory in faith in the future.  The prophet Ezekiel said that if you are sinning in current life, you will get judgment despite your strong commitment to Christianity in the past.  On the contrary, if you are right with the Lord, no matter how sinful life you have lived, you will get saved.  Many people nowadays are looking for an easy church and easy sermon.  a rich young person in the gospel of luke missed his opportunity to be saved because he could not give up his riches for the sake of the Lord though he had kept all the laws. You may give up progressively or rapidly.  you need to practice giving up the things you are attached to.

The Lord request all you have.  Luke 14:26 says: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.  Mt 16:25: For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.  John 12:25:  Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Mt 13:44:  The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.  In order to gain heaven, we need to sell all our belongings on the earth.  That is what the gospel requires you of.  That is how much valuable the heaven is.

Since the time of Constantin, people began entering the church to get blessing, prosperity as well as salvation while the believers before Constantin paid such a price to become a Christian. The way to the salvation is narrow so that there are very few to look for.  There are very few who looking for the door to the genuine salvation and the way.  Many are invited but few are chosen.  The fact that you are invited does not assure your salvation.  The ones who are saved are chosen by the Lord.  only those who live their life fitting to the Lord's standard will be saved,  The rich young person appearing in the Luke 18 lived his life depending on is riches. Jesus knew it when he saw the young man.  So, he asked him to desert his riches and depend on only Jesus for his salvation. Jesus said " lieve your rices behind and follow me".  Salvation is only following the Lord.  However, the rich young man couldn't follow Jesus's request, and ended up losing his salvation.  It was because he loved his riches more than Jesus.  Jesus didn't present him the four principles of spiritual laws, but said give away your riches to the poor and follow me.

If you have anything that you love more than Jesus, it will be hard to keep your salvation. If you own house or money, determine that you will live a life of steards.  While having those under your ownership, use them for the Lord.  Continuously use them for His sake.  If you try to give up at one time, it is very hard.  SO many people failed to do so.  Zachieus love the Lord and desired entering heaven more than riches, he could give up his riches. 

the young  man in the Luke is spiritually blinded and naked.  If the rich is taken away from him, he is a really poor man inside. Most of us is like this young man.  Many of us hang onto keep our title, house, business and the worldly success with all our effort.  Because of their attachment to riches and honorable status, they lose the time frame to weave white righteous garment, which will lead them to heaven. Furthermore, many believers attempt to deceive the Lord by practicing their religious life.  but our Lord is not being deceived by your religious act itself.  His eye sight is life a flame.  He sees with his penetrating eyes to dicern what occupies your heart.  Mt 6:24 : No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.  money, status, and children is our idol if you are attached to them more than to the Lord.  If you have anything that occupies your heart more than the Lord, you are idol worshipper.  we cannot love both.  We need to take one into our heart and desert the other.  God or our greed.

The young man in the Luke wanted to be saved by his own standard.  So he turned away when he heard God's standard.  Jesus did not try to assure his salvation by lowering the standard of the gospel.   Jesus did not invite him  for sinners prayer.  But rather Jesus let the young man left.  We cannot obtain our salvation by getting to the Lord.  The young man thought that He was righteous, that is the reason why he could not repent.  And He wanted a salvation without cost.   Maybe many of us will turn away just like this young man if we need to choose just one.

What makes me sad is that many preachers have watered down the the strength of the gospel to give assurance of salvation to those who are like this young rich fellow.  Western believers are so much assured of their salvation without paying any price.  70 percent of the street people in the us has the conviction that they are saved.  That is because they have heard watered down gospel too much. If they tried to drink the blood of Jesus, the cup of suffering, they cannot easily assured of their salvation.  Without having continuous repentence and transformation in acts, salavation is not possible.  I believe that we need to turn away many visitors who enter the church with different motivation than being saved.  the pastors should not be happy with attending numbers and amount of offering.  this false   cnviction of their salvation makes many believers miss their salvation.   The NT says that repentence that turned away from sinning is a necessity for salvation, belief in the Lord and the proof of commiting all their life to Jesus  are the precondition of the salvation.  The degree of one's faith should reach offing all they have to the Lord.  We cannot be saved by the faith to heal desease and perform miracles.  Belif means obeying the Lord.  It is entering the relationship[ with the Lord and allow Him to rule over all my life. We should be able to respond to the Lord just like Saul after he met Jesus on the road: " What do you want ME TO DO?  We should be able to give up our belongings, time, pleasure and even to our life.  This kind of gospel is not popular at all.  Very few follows the path.  There will be few who are saved.
