Number 1: “An act of God”
“But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did. (Deuteronomy 11:7) 

Israel were reminded of the great acts of God … the drowning of the Egyptian army in the Red Sea … and so on.  

If that happened today, Insurance Companies would refuse to cover the billions of dollars of damage to Pharoah’s army, as they would label it an act of God.

Their reasoning is that they are not responsible for what God does.

However, fortunately, God covers his own acts with a life insurance of a different sort … God covers God’s acts … that is … although man is born a sinner, he can die a winner!

Number 2: “All things are possible”
“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

Man, in his own puffed up mind, likes to think that all things are possible concerning his own abilities … but according to the Bible this is robbing God … as the all things are possible only with God!

The Jews were confronted with the impossible set of rules of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) …. and Jesus replies that it was possible with him ... that is … he was God in the flesh.

Now today, if nothing was impossible for man, we wouldn’t need God. Dear Reader, we should be thankful that impossible things force us to go to God.  

Number 3: “All things to all people”
“To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22) 

This phrase is mistaken to mean that Christians are to compromise their doctrine and beliefs in order to get along with people … to get them saved.

A Christian does not lie to make friends with a liar … nor does he become worldly to win the world.

Christians win people to the Lord by taking on different roles of a teacher that explains the scriptures, a fisherman that fishes for souls, a farmer who tends to his crop, a shepherd who feeds the sheep or a soldier who goes to war for the Lord.

This is what it means to become all things to all men.


Number 4:All Good!” “It’ll all work out for the best!

Number 5:Apple of his eye

Number 6: “You’re as good as dead!”
