Everything is possible to God

How to live the extraordinary?

John 10.25 : "Jesus answered them, I told you, and you believe not: the works which I do in the name of my Father bear witness of me, but you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep...."


The extraordinary is a tiny part of the ordinary. Man asserts his intellectual, technical, scientific progress; but what interests God what counts in his eyes are not the abilities of which he himself endowed his creature. The dream of God is the moral side: the vision of a man who serves the will of the Holy Spirit. Hearts that speak about the greatness of what Christ did for us.


John 14.12 : "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do, and he will do greater works, because I am going to the Father."


Jesus taught about the kingdom of God, his love and his righteousness. He healed the sick, performed miracles, and raised the dead. Attracted by his miracles, the people tried to make him an earthly king, but Jesus did not come for that. The Lord has come to save this world, even today Jesus uses these members (the elect) for the same purpose. It is an extraordinary task and that is where our efforts are. Faith is an attitude that communicates the goodness of Jesus Christ.


Ephesians 2.10 : "For we are his work, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God hath prepared in advance, that we may do them."


Jesus performed miracles to satisfy real needs. One day the Pharisees asked him to do a miracle to show them his power, but Jesus refused. He healed because he loved people and wanted to satisfy their needs, it was a work of heart and not show. When there is no more hope, God charges us with love, he leads us to a new life by communicating to us the very life of Christ.


Romans 12.1 : "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which will be your reasonable service."


Conclusion : everything comes from God, we can not pride ourselves in anything. The Lord trains us as an instrument to use them. As grace grows in us, God works for us; in us and by us. The work of God is the believer himself: we are his work. In the immensity of Christians transformed by Jesus, we adopt an attitude of humility and dedication. By the faith given of God, the believer accomplishes the extraordinary because the Word tells us: "For nothing is impossible to God". (Luke 1:37)


Matthew 19.26 : "Jesus looked upon them and said," For men it is impossible, but for God all things are possible." Amen!
