Often times as Christians we read a verse that seems simple and yet we miss the true meaning. When Jesus asks the question, “Why do you call Me good?” He was trying to lead the rich young ruler to see that He was God by stating that “No one is good but One, that is, God.”
So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.
As Christians, we need to point people to Jesus Christ. We need to help them to see that He is the only One who is good and that it is only through His righteousness that we can inherit eternal life.
