Question Answer Series [1]: Who then can be saved?


Question: Matthew 19:25-26 “When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”  Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible

Answer: We all know, the greatest gift we all received from heaven is Jesus. And Jesus came into this world to save sinners. But how can a sinner be saved? Acts 16 verse 30, The jailer asked the same question, what must I do to be Saved?

It is a very relevant question that we also need to ask. Once Jesus was talking about the rich people, how they will come into the Kingdom of God, hearing the requirement, the disciples in Acts 19 verse 25, they were greatly astonished and they asked, who then can be saved?

We think salvation is very easy, but actually Jesus replies there, with man it is impossible, but with God, everything is possible. So, it not the way we think many times. The very first time when church was born and people came to the saving knowledge of Jesus and received salvation, we see that in Acts 2:37, people ask a question.

And they were cut to their heart and asked, brothers, what shall we do? So, everything starts with one place, heart cut, man cannot create that. It is God’s grace, it’s God who opens our heart. Luke 7 verse 37, we see a woman who was in a town when she heard Jesus was there, she living a sinful life, she stood behind him, weeping.

Weeping in behind the Jesus at His feet, and covered Jesus’ feet with her tears. Jesus said, unless you repent you will perish. You remember Peter weeping Luke 22:61; when he was convicted of his sin. Did we come into the kingdom of God with a broken and a contrite spirit? with weeping. Did we enter on the right way?

Let’s examine. Let us examine, did you receive the look from Jesus that we see ourselves broken and contrite
