Hello and a warm welcome to you as you join me for this Episode of The Ministry Encouragement Podcast.  I’m very blessed and encouraged that you are with me today.  Thanks for investing your time in our community and my prayer is that you will receive new insights for living the Christian life and your personal walk with Jesus will be stronger because we shared in this.

Today I want to discuss some impossible things for Christians.  This is not your typical list which comes out of the idea, “With God, all things are possible.”  While we believe that with our hearts and minds, today I want us to take a look at from a different angle.

TEN things are impossible for all Christians.   It’s impossible for Christians to:

1) Become perfect – without any issues to struggle with in this life
2) To spend eternity in hell or becoming eternally lost
3) To be outside God’s Divine Love
4) To be alone
5) Not have God’s love in your life, pursuing a closer relationship with you
6) To be without attacks from the enemy while in this life
7) Not to be forgiven through faith and grace
8) Not to have one or more Spiritual Gifts in us
9) To be demon possessed (Demons mess with us but can’t possess us)
10) Not to have the Holy Spirit at work in us

Hopefully through our sharing about these ten impossible things for Christians, you have gained new insights into the Christian Life and Faith.  The “common red thread” that runs throughout these ten and others you may think of to add to the list is God’s Divine Love and Grace.

Around everyone of us each day are many people that feel God is against them, trying to catch them doing something wrong and may see God as spiritual “enforcer” of laws and regulations.  This view of God is not the Biblical witness nor is it congruent with the ministry of Jesus Christ while he lived his fully human life.  God is full of grace and love.

It’s my prayer that by hearing and reflecting on these things we will move closer to become not only more passionate Christians of The Resurrection but transmitters of God’s Grace, Forgiveness and Hope in the days ahead.  There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.


Once again, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to share in this podcast.  Our community continues to grow each week and we have hundreds of Christians around the world who are praying for these messages to reach thousands of others across the entire world.  We are blessed to be able to have the technology in the Internet that can span the globe and touch lives we may never meet this side of Heaven.

Please consider sharing this with those in your family, circle of friends, co-workers or others that you know personally.  May God use you to make a difference in the lives of those you are in relationship with.  I ask you to increase your personal prayers for our ministry, our Staff and me as we continue to be faithful servants of our Lord Jesus Christ in the today’s world.

I hope to hear your thoughts, prayers, and reflections on today’s or other podcast Episodes.  Several of you have called and let me know that you are using this in various classes and a couple of Pastors have shared some of the podcasts in their worship services. 

Until next time, may the Holy Spirit fill you with love, grace, courage and power to serve in Christ for the making and growing of Disciples, for the transformation of the world through God’s Presence.  You can make a major difference in another person’s life!

In Christ,
