Mark 10:25-27
(Jesus said…) “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” 
Jesus cautioned his disciples about what a seductive trap wealth and riches can be. The disciples were apparently shocked by this, but then Jesus told them that God is able to save anyone…even those who are rich, or have distractions vying for their attention. 
There are circumstances that affect my life. There are forces that have shaped me, obstacles that have hindered me, and temptations that have tripped me. But there is nothing in my life strong enough to prevent God from saving me. His strength is great enough to overcome every challenge, and remove every excuse which would keep me from serving Him. This week, instead of leaning on excuses I need to say “thank you!” to the almighty God of the universe, who is strong enough to save me. 
God, thank you for saving me! Thank you that there is nothing that can take me from your hand! Thank you that you are greater than any other force, influence, or obstacle in my life, so that I am without excuses before you.
