With God All Things Are Possible

With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

— Matthew 19:26

The impossible is happening. Christ is risen and death is defeated. We shall live again. This is the declaration of Easter. The Great I AM has made all things new.

In fact, with God, all things are possible, and nothing is incredible. Why should it be thought incredible that God should raise the dead? God, who created us out of the dust of the earth, can bring us back in an instant. The God who swirled the galaxies into the sky can raise the dead. Not only is this the teaching of the Scripture, but the pledge that we will live again after death is made certain by the fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. “I am He who lives, though I was dead. Look! I am alive forevermore” (Revelation 1:18). The resurrection of Christ from the dead is what we celebrate each Easter Sunday. It is a celebration of the fact that with God, all things are possible.

Question to ponder:
Why was Jesus the only One who could be a pleasing and acceptable sacrifice to the Lord?
