Like the rich young ruler, many people want to know what they need to do to inherit eternal life. They have heard many different opinions from people, yet they do not know what the Bible says. They think that there is something that they need to do and fail to realize that it is not about what they must do, but about what Jesus has done on the cross in their place.
Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
When people ask what they need to do to inherit eternal life, let them know that there is nothing that they can do to earn their salvation because Jesus Christ did it for them. All they need to do is receive the free gift of salvation by faith through trusting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
