Mark 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.’”
“Impossible is Nothing!” That’s the tagline of a popular global sporting brand. But is it really though? True, we’ve seen sportsmen and women defy all odds, overcome physical, financial and societal challenges to rise to the top in their field. But even they are human. They have weaknesses too. They are not perfect. They have their own share of struggles – both internal and external.
But there is One for whom impossible is truly nothing – the Lord our God. He created the earth, the stars, the trees, the oceans, the birds, animals and mankind in under a week. Creating thousands of species to fill the oceans and the skies was all in a day’s work for Him. Nothing is impossible with Him.
Today’s key verse is actually Jesus’s response to the disciples’ question, “Who then can be saved?” (Mark 10:26) Jesus was giving the disciples counter-cultural guidance on who would enter the Kingdom of God. In reality, it would seem impossible for our sins to be wiped clean and for us to inherit eternal life. But God made a way for us. Jesus took the punishment on our behalf. He purchased our freedom with His blood.
The word, “Impossible” does not exist in God’s dictionary. Perhaps you’re going through an impossible situation in your life right now. Remember, you can always reach out to a God who specializes in making the impossible possible. He may not work things out the way you expect Him to… but you can be assured, He will make all things work out for your good (Romans 8:28).
