The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked.
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” (Mark 10:26-27 NLT)
Until Jesus made this statement, His disciples didn’t understood that Jesus is the end of the law and there is not even a slim chance to get in apart from this Provision God made.
There is a time in everyone’s life where all our religious hopes will be shattered and then the authentic hope sets in – which will never be taken from us! This is called salvation.
Gospel of Jesus Christ is nothing but a shocking truth that we are wasting time by beating ourselves and others with man made rules and old wives’ tales instead of trusting the Way God made by the sacrifice of His own Son Jesus Christ Who died for our sins and resurrected to make us righteous.
Let’s put an end to stories and begin new life in Christ!
I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. Romans 10:2-4
