The young man who came to Jesus had his own way to get to heaven and sought for Jesus approval of his way.  Instead Jesus pointed out that no one is acceptable with God through their own self righteousness.

1.  Standard sought - "Good master" - man had his standard


2.  Standard stated - God is the only one "good"

3.  Standard tested - Man thought He measured up but when tested he did not

God's standard for heaven is perfection.  This standard can only be met through the righteousness of Christ.  We must admit that we cannot measure up in our own righteousness and go God's way through Christ!

Walk with the Lord and go God's way!!!
