God Says

Published January 16, 2013

While searching for an old file I came across a handout that gives a list of “God says” scriptures. I cannot remember where or when I obtained this handout but felt it was a great resource to share. There is a total of fourteen scripture verses included with this handout. A small number if you consider all God has to say in His scripture. For my next several blog posts I will quote and comment on each scripture.                              

(#1) “God says all things are possible.”

Luke 18:27

New International Version (NIV)

27 Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”

The rich young ruler had just forfeited his chance for salvation. He chose the riches of earth over the riches of the new kingdom. Jesus then told his disciples it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. The disciples were amazed and asked the question “who can be saved”. Jesus replied, “What is impossible for man is possible for God.” The disciples were perhaps confused and maybe even alarmed about whether or not their salvation was secure. Peter had told Jesus they had given up everything to follow Him. Jesus reply was, “many who are first will be last and the last will be first.”          (The gospels of Matthew and Mark also include this story)

Jesus is referring to the salvation of man. He was teaching his disciples salvation is totally the work of God. Any attempt to gain salvation on the basis of human achievement, merit, or work is futile. Only by the grace of God, can you be saved (Eph 2:8-9, Tit 3:5).

Are you still depending on your achievements, your good works, and your merit?                        It is impossible!

 I am so thankful God says, “What is impossible for man is possible for Me”.
