“Then who can be saved?” 26 And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible,” (19:25-26).

Consider His Impossible Salvation

  • Salvation is Impossible… with people
    • as it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one;
      11 There is none who understands,
      There is none who seeks for God;
      12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless;
      There is none who does good,
      There is not even one.”
      13 “Their throat is an open grave,
      With their tongues they keep deceiving,”
      “The poison of asps is under their lips”;
      14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness”;
      15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood,
      16 Destruction and misery are in their paths,
      17 And the path of peace they have not known.”
      18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes,” (Romans 3:10-18).
  • Salvation is God’s Gift
    • For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast, (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • With God All Things Are Possible
    • But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life, (Romans 5:8-10).

How do we respond to His Impossible Salvation?

May we never tire of considering His Impossible Salvation. Every day should cause us to marvel as we contemplate His Impossible Salvation: reconciled to holy God through the death of His Son and given life by His resurrected life; such an indescribable gift that not one of us deserves and certainly could never earn.

  • Do we believe what His Word pronounces of His Impossible Salvation due to the condition of every human born? “as it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one;…” (Romans 3:10-18).
  • Have we placed our faith in what only He can do; the provision and gift of His Impossible Salvation? “For by grace you have been saved through faith;…” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • Do we live convinced all things are possible with Him? He, Who has accomplished such a great and Impossible Salvation by giving His own Son, what will He not give those who belong to Him, who have wholly trusted Him alone for His Impossible Salvation? “…while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…” (Romans 5:8-10).

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? (Romans 8:31-32).
