Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

Mark 1:40 "And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean."


There are TWO words that are commonly used day in and day out in the English language that should never follow the word “God” in a sentence. The first word is “want” (wanting, wanted), and the second is “try” (trying, tried).


God has never wanted to do anything that He did not do. God has never tried to do anything that He has not accomplished. God does not want to save sinners. He saves sinners. God is not trying to save sinners, He will have mercy and compassion on whom He will (Romans 9:15). May God truly teach us what He taught the begging leper. That poor fellow had a great need and he knew it. He was full of leprosy. But he was made to know something that many never are. He knew that God could, because God can do anything and everything, yet his greatest desire was to know if God would.
