Wesley's Notes for Matthew 19:26


19:26 Jesus looking upon them - To compose their hurried spirits. O what a speaking look was there! Said to them - With the utmost sweetness: With men this is impossible - It is observable, he does not retract what he had said: no, nor soften it in the least degree, but rather strengthens it, by representing the salvation of a rich man as the utmost effort of Omnipotence.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 19:26


Mt 19:26 With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. This means that human efforts alone cannot save a man. The young man was zealous in keeping the commandments, but there was a great lack. The grace of God only can save. It can break down the trust in wealth, take away the love of wealth, and fill the heart with the love of Christ. It is "the love of money", not money, that is the root of all evil. See 1Ti 6:10. A pauper may love money as much as a millionaire.

    This was sent to me by a Christian friend today. I have no power of my own. I don 't need it. I just have to trust God The Father the Son and The Holy Spirit.
  • Garland Creel for verse 26
    Just goes to show that... Without God, we can do, be , see or understand nothing.
