I’m sure we’ve all heard this. But many times, we never look at the context of this verse. The disciples were questioning the Lord Jesus Christ about eternal life.
Matthew 19:25-26 (KJV) When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
In answer to the question of who can be saved, Jesus said no man can save himself – but God can save all men, any man – even the vilest of sinners.
Are you trying to save yourself? Jesus said this was impossible. You can’t do it. Going to church can’t do it. Getting baptized can’t do it. Giving money can’t do it. Helping others can’t do it. Only God can do it. By his grace, he gives you the faith to believe that Jesus is the Son of God who died on the cross for your sins and rose again the third day. Have you accepted the free gift of eternal life? The price has already been paid. You can reject it or you can accept it.
