Living Truly Rich and Truly Poor

Lessons from Clement of Alexandria and the Rich Young Ruler

One day, a rich young man approached Jesus and asked Him how he could obtain eternal life. This man was rich with the world’s goods, yet he knew he still lacked something. With all he possessed, his life was still incomplete and he hoped Jesus could show him the way to true life. Unfortunately, Jesus’ words were too difficult for him and he left disappointed, not obtaining the life he sought. Some two hundred years later, in the city of Alexandria, Clement revisits this story to teach us what Jesus meant and how we can apply Jesus’ words to our lives. Nearly two thousand years later, Jesus’ words, and the teachings of Clement of Alexandria, still speak to us. Does Jesus really want us to give away all our possession? Must we become poor that we might have hope of eternal life to come? What does Jesus really think about wealth and riches? How can one live righteously in an age of prosperity? Join us as we search for these and other answers in the words of Jesus.

The Blog of Job

A believer's journey through the Book of Job

The Book of Job tells us of one man's journey through a season of great distress and suffering. All of us have experienced difficult times in our lives, times when it was hard to simply make it through the day. We have also known others near to us who have gone through similar times. This book examines how Job endured the difficult times -- the things he did right and the things he did wrong. We will also look at how Job's friends tried to comfort him and the lessons they learned along the way. As you read this book, you will be able to identify with multiple characters in the Book of Job. By studying them, my hope is that you will learn more about yourself, more about how to help others going through difficult times, and more about the grace and love of God.
