Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel I was telling My apostles how hard it is for a rich man to be saved. Some people rely on their own wealth to buy everything, instead of depending on Me for everything. I even emphasized that it is as hard to put a camel through an eye of a needle, as it is for a rich man to be saved. The eye of a needle was a four foot by four foot opening to keep the animals out. What seems impossible for man, is possible for God. If you do not have My help and grace, you cannot enter heaven. To enter heaven, you need to repent of your sins, and accept Me as the Master of your life. I died on the cross to atone for all of your sins, so you need to accept My gift of salvation. A rich person is attracted to the wealth and possessions of this world. It is hard to give up his or her wealth, and even to share it with others for some rich people. When you die, you cannot take your wealth with you. Having a lot of money will not buy your way into heaven. You will be judged on your love for Me and your neighbors, and not on how successful you were in this world. What does it profit you if you gain the whole world, but lose your soul? It is the eternal destination of your soul that matters the most.”
