“Who Then Can Be Saved?”
The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:26-27
Jesus was talking to a young rich man, who wanted to know how to be saved. When Jesus told him that there was one thing he lacked. He MUST go and sell everything he had and give the money to the poor. The rich young man, could not do it, because his HEART was not right. He was unwilling to sacrifice for the sake of receiving SALVATION. He departed a LOST soul, and Jesus said to His disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!” He said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God.” This is because, in most cases, the heart of a rich man, belongs to his riches. And he cannot and will not SACRIFICE for his SALVATION.
The disciples were AMAZED at His words. So, Jesus said to them, “How hard it is to enter the Kingdom of God! Being able to enter the Kingdom of God, carries with it certain demands. One is to DENY yourself and take up your cross and follow Jesus. (Mat. 16:24) This means that you MUST be WILLING to give up YOUR ambitions and plans, and TRUST God to lead you down the RIGHT path, one that will lead you to an ETERNITY in HEAVEN. You MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST be WILLING to CONFESS your sins to God, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then you MUST be WILLING to BELIEVE that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ESCAPE Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and GAIN Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and this is WHO CAN BE SAVED. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
