When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “For men, this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”
Lord, we cannot save ourselves. Nothing we could do would merit our salvation. Only you can redeem us, through your Son, Jesus Christ.
We are God-made, not self-made. We have nothing that you do not give us. What, then, are riches and fame to us? Help us to abandon everything to you. Thy will be done.
