A Rich Man, A Camel, and A Needle

In Matthew 19:23-24 we once again find the disciples astounded and somewhat perplex regarding Jesus’ metaphorical illustration about the comparison of rich man, a camel, a needle, and the Kingdom of Heaven. Then in v26 the Bible says Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” Experience teaches us that the unexplainable things in life presents opportunities for us to to trust God more with our lives. If salvation which was gifted to us was made possible through the bloody rugged cross what makes us think the God of the impossible won’t show up in our pain, disappointment, frustration, troubles, and problems? Let me be clear, in context all things are made possible means “only God can save sinners and give them eternal life.” No human being can hijack this power, in salvation or in any other matter. Therefore, our response should always be that of humility, submission, and trust!
