One day, the disciples of Jesus were shocked at His teaching in a way that they could not measure. They said,

Who then can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Mark 10:26-27

One of the great privileges of being a true Christian is letting people know that no work of man is good enough to earn entrance into Heaven. Only the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ can save someone’s soul.
