Scripture and a Snapshot – Week 36 – 2016
This week’s Scripture is Matthew 19:24
Verse 19:25 and 26 go on to say:
“When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
The Life Application Bible says this about verses 19:24-26:
“Because it is impossible for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, it appears impossible for a rich person to get into heaven. (This confused the disciples. They thought that if anyone could be saved it would be the rich, whom their culture considered especially blessed by God.) Jesus explained, however, that “with God all things are possible” (19:26) Even rich men can enter the Kingdom if God brings them in. Faith in him, not in self or riches, is what counts. On what are you counting for salvation?”
It is so easy to fall into the trap of wanting money and MORE money. But there’s the old saying…….money can’t buy happiness. And I’m 100% sure that money won’t buy our way to Heaven.
I hope you enjoyed today’s verses.
