New Defender's Study Bible Notes
19:22 great possessions. No matter how outwardly righteous a person may be, he can only be saved if he comes to Christ with nothing of his own. The Lord may not ask a follower to give up his possessions or anything else, but maybe He will. That person must at least be willing to do so. We cannot bargain with God. Until He saves us, we are dead in sins, and only Christ can give us life.
