Jesus prepared the rich young ruler’s heart to receive the ultimatum of the gospel. He had taught the goodness of God, then reminded the ruler of his own sin, and now he was going to tell him what must be done to inherit eternal life. He must repent and believe. As we continue our "Rich Young Rules" theme, Rich Young comes to find that he doesn't have life figured out the way he thought he did.
