Happy 🤗🤗Friday🤗🤗 NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GODMark 10: 27 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”This is the response to the statement made in verse 26: “Who then can be saved?” Jesus had been teaching about hows it’s impossible for a rich person to get into heaven. He had just had the encounter with the rich young ruler and when Jesus told Him to enter heaven, he would have to sell all he owned, then given it all along with his wealth to the poor to be able to enter heaven. So of course the disciples were concerned. The had been with Jesus for a while and even they weren’t sure if they had done enough to get into heaven. Please remember the cross had not happened yet and so they were not aware of how God was going to demonstrate how He would take what is impossible for man, salvation and forgiveness of sin which leads to redemption and restoration for mankind to back to God. So at that moment, receiving salvation was impossible for man and only possible by God. Well so was the cross. The cross was orchestrated by God for our benefit and Jesus being able to bear our sin on the cross was also by the power of God. There is so much that God can do that is impossible for us to do, I could write for a lifetime and still never explain it, so I’m just going to have to trust that for the most part what is possible to man, calling on the name of Jesus to save us and surrendering ourselves to Him, pretty much sums up what man is capable of doing and then leaving the rest (what’s impossible for man) for God to demonstrate His power and majesty in our lives. Point is every aspect and difficulty that faces and overwhelms us and poses impossible situations for us, presents a real and possible solution for God to work in our lives. Have a great day and be safe out there today. God bless🤗🤗🤗🤗 ... See MoreSee Less
