The Eye of a Needle

Text: Mat. 19:23-30

Introduction: What a feat. Not even Hodini could pull off getting a camel to fit through the eye of a needle. Here we have a very good indication that salvation is not an easy feat for a rich man or women, or even a poor man. Salvation is not easy until God is in it.

I. The Difficulty – v.24
A. Self Supporting
B. Sacrifice – Not Willing to…
C. The camel is a type of the sinner
1. Smelly – rolling in the manure of the world
2. Spit – filth from their mouth – cursing, gossip, tale-bearers
3. The camel never sees its own hump; but its neighbor's hump is ever before its eyes.
4. Can be lazy and lay down

II. The Danger
Mark 3:29 “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:”
A. Need for salvation – eternal life or the lack off
B. Hell is the consequence or the option
C. The Danger Signs – Falling Rocks

III. The Deception – Hold the needle close to you eye and look at a camel
Rev. 20:10 “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
A. Satan’s Trap that works very well
B. Worldly Possessions – money, investments, property
C. Selfish – self-righteous, self-reliant

IV. The Deliverance - Salvation
Psa. 37:40 “And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.”
A. Relinquish to God what is His already
B. Be willing to make a sacrifice for God – He did!
C. Get Self out of the picture and get God into it.

Conclusion: We must come to God as a little child. With nothing of our own to stand in the way. Child-like faith. Won’t you let go of the possessions that might be holding you back from God!


A boy with his hand in the cookie jar that could not get it out as long his hand was grasping the cookie.

Russian author Leo Tolstoy tells the story of a rich man who was never satisfied. He always wanted more and more. He heard of a wonderful chance to get more land. For a thousand rubles he could have all that he could walk around in a day. But he had to make it back to the starting point by sundown or he would lose it all.
He arose early and set out. He walked on and on, thinking that he could get just a little more land if he kept going on. But he went so far that he realized he must walk very fast if he was to get back in time to claim the land. As the sun got lower in the sky, he quickened his pace. He began to run. As he came within sight of the starting place, he exerted his last energies, plunged over the finish line, fell to the ground, and collapsed. A stream of blood poured out of his mouth and he lay dead. His servant took a spade and dug a grave. He made it just long enough and just wide enough and buried him.
The title of Tolstoy's story is "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" He concludes by saying, "Six feet from his head to his heels was all he needed."
