“Time for bed, Rosemary,” said grandmother.
“Let’s read the story of creation.” As she read through the verses, she would pause and emphasize how carefully God worked and made something different each day. She wanted her granddaughter to love and understand the power, majesty and wonder of God.
“What do you think of this story?” she asked.
“Oh, I love it,” came the reply. “You never know what God’s going to do!”
Jesus once said, “It is very hard to get into the Kingdom of God.”
He was then asked, “Then who in the world can be saved?”
He replied, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”
Jesus took this important opportunity to teach the message of salvation. Although salvation by one’s efforts is impossible, by God’s grace we can be saved if we place our faith in Christ.
It is God’s love that provides the grace for our salvation. “You never know what God’s going to do.”
Prayer: We thank and praise You, Father, for what You did to make our salvation possible through Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: 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.”
