“I, even I, am the Lord; and beside Me there is no Savior.” Isaiah 43:11
Thinking about God’s great power is exciting. With Him all things are possible. Nothing is too hard for God. But we often fail to appreciate what it takes for God to save a soul. Adrian Rogers wrote:
“It takes more of God’s power to save a soul through the cross of Jesus than it does to do any other thing. God had no difficulty creating the universe. The Bible tells us He spoke and it was so. But when God wrote salvation’s story, He went to great difficulty. Let me illustrate.
What if I held a service and had the power to straighten a cripple’s legs or to bring sight to the blind? The next service would be standing room only. Now I certainly want God to heal, but let me tell you something else.
What if I held a service and a little girl walked down the aisle and gave her heart to Jesus? That is a greater miracle than opening the eyes of the blind because the Son of God had to hang on a cross in agony and blood to purchase her salvation! Jesus did not come as a great healer or teacher, He came as a Savior.”
