Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
Wow. That's pretty scary, isn't it? It's easier for an 800lb camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God. I can barely get a thread through the eye of a needle! In our minds, getting a camel through the eye of a needle is impossible, so how is it even possible we could get into God's kingdom?
But then we see verses such as Philippians 4:13--"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." If I can do all things, how can I accomplish the impossible task of entering the kingdom of God? This is the first thought that occurred to me when I put these two verses together. What I was failing to do was look at the second part of Philippians 4:13--"THROUGH CHRIST who strengthens me." The truth is, it is absolutely impossible for us to enter the kingdom of God. But, like with the verse, we must look at the second part of the truth. With Christ, there is nothing we can't do. With Christ, and only with Christ, can we enter the kingdom of God.
My Journey is to walk with Christ and to one day enter into the kingdom of God and see my Father's face and His kingdom with my own eyes. I have set up this blog so that you might find the Truth and accompany me on my Journey, so let it begin....
