But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)
This answer to the apostle’s question, “Who then can be saved?” is the answer for all. It is impossible for man to save himself. It takes the very power of God to save fallen man. The Jews at the time of Christ saw success and wealth as a sign of righteousness. Jesus said in essence that these, for all practical purposes, are impossible to save. Therefore, it takes a miracle to save a lost soul. That miracle took place at the cross of Christ. It took God loving you and me enough to send His Son to die in our place. It took the sacrifice of heaven to cleanse us of our sins. It is impossible for us to justify ourselves. It takes Christ to do that. Are you saved? Do you belong to Christ? If you answer yes, you are a miracle. Therefore, whenever you find yourself in a situation that seems impossible, remember, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” Miracles are His business.
