“And looking at them Jesus said to them, ‘With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’” (Matthew 19:26).
Hearing the demands set before the rich young ruler and the expectations of the law, one is left wondering, like the disciples, if salvation is even possible (v.25). That’s the very point Jesus is making. The demands of God’s word make us keenly aware of our need for a Savior. Apart from him there is no life. The cross of Jesus says that God has accomplished for us what we could have never achieved for ourselves.
