A rich young man comes to Jesus asking 'Good teacher, what must I do to be saved?' The conversation takes a very unexpected turn.
Jesus says 'It is harder for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.'
But what if it was an infant pygmy camel and a giant novelty needle?
There are no loopholes in receiving the Kingdom of God and eternal life - Jesus has closed them all. There is only Jesus. What is impossible for people is possible for God.

This sermon was preached on Sunday 11th October 2015, at Lakeside College in Pakenham, Victoria.
It can be listened to in conjunction with the Prezi zooming visuals found at this link.

Part of Jesus' mission, during his incarnation, was to bring healing to people - spiritual healing, forgiveness, physical healing, emotional and social healing. Jesus continues his healing ministry today, sometimes in miraculous ways, sometimes in more 'normal' ways such as through medical professions. Ultimately, all who believe in Jesus will receive healing by being 'raised up' to new life after death, where there is no more disease or mourning or crying or pain.
When we pray for healing, we do not manipulate God. It's not our faith or our pious prayers that have great power - we simply put ourselves into the gracious hands of Jesus and ask him to do what is good for us.
This sermon was preached at Lakeside College, Pakenham on Sunday 27th September 2015.
Enjoy!
