What Jesus Did! 'Everything Is Possible' — Mark 10:26-27

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

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

Key Thought

Jesus' assertion is true, or our faith is really in vain. In Christ, we have strength beyond human will power, knowledge, or ability. Even more importantly, God through Jesus has covered all of the shortcomings and sins that we have. God is ... and was ... and will be ... God. Nothing is impossible with him!

Today's Prayer

O Father, please make this truth that everything is possible with you self-evident to those who lead in your churches. I trust that everything is possible with you! In Jesus' name. Amen.
