Everyone has heard the verse- "With God all things are possible" right? I was reading it tonight b/c I was needing some help from God. Struggles and tribulations are usually when this verse is used.
To be honest, it hit me in a different way tonight. Probably b/c I read above it and below it.
This verse is talking about salvation. The Lord says that it's hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. There are many people out there who actually believe it's what you have in this life or what you do in this life. That's not the truth.
People, the Lord goes on to say that it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. That doesn't sound easy at all right?
What does that mean to you?
His disciples were a bit confused, maybe you are too. They asked, "Who can be saved?"
What Jesus was saying (see, the red words ARE the coolest!), is that with man, it is IMPOSSIBLE, but with God it is POSSIBLE. If you want to enter the kingdom of God, then I suggest you to search your heart and see what God is leading you to do.
You see, salvation is only through God. It's not through man, good works, or what you have here on Earth. The ONLY thing you can take to heaven is your loved ones. That is it. Period.
I was struggling with some things tonight, and I went and searched for this verse. God did lead me to fall on my knees and hand it over to Him. Give it all to Him and believe He can handle it. But, He also gave me this lesson in which I felt lead to post.
