And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”—Mark 9:23
I love how Jesus challenges the prepositional phrases that stir around in our mind—"if." He long to remove this thinking from our mind and language from our lips—"if" think and "if" speak. He even finds it partially laughable and insulting to the power of the mighty God. Even though he gives us a sharp chastisement regarding our lack of believing, he follows it with a possibility assertion. "All things are possible for one who believes." Not one of chance possibility, but an infinite possibility.
Last night Matt Carpenter, of the Cardinals hit a stand up double off a bunt. Sounds impossible right? A non-sliding stand up double? Sounds unbelievable. But it happened. Watch Matt Carpenters bunt and believe that today God can do anything he wants, what he wants from us is merely belief.
