mission impossible

"Is it possible that He Who did not spare His own Son but handed Him over for the sake of us all will not grant us all things besides?" —Romans 8:32

"Nothing is impossible with God" (Lk 1:37). Nonetheless, the good news is that some things are impossible for God.

It's impossible for Him to love us any more or any less. He loves us infinitely and unconditionally. It's impossible for Him not to respond with love to our every prayer, for He is Love (1 Jn 4:16). He'll respond either as we requested or with something better. It's impossible for our heavenly Father not to grant us all things besides (Rm 8:32). It's impossible for God to be against us, even if we do things against our better interests (Rm 8:31). It's impossible for Him to forsake us. He will never let anything separate us from His love (Rm 8:35). He'll love us eternally even if we separate ourselves from Him by choosing self and hell. It's impossible for God's word not to be true or His promises to not be fulfilled.

What's impossible for God is possible for us. We can choose to not respond to His love. Salvation and damnation are both possible for us. Give your life to Him, the Lord and Savior.
