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.” (Mark 10:26-27.)
I was thinking earlier this week on infinite small numbers, like fractions that keep getting divided in half. Is there an indivisible infinitesimal – that is, do you ever divide so small that it is both infinitely small and completely undividable any further? No, infinity means infinity and that goes for both smallness and largeness.*
Which then makes me think of God.
God is infinitely greater than we are, and therefore we are infinitely less than he is. But this infinite gap is bridged by the One who is both God and us because he is infinitely capable.
*Yes I am aware that in geometry a point on a line is indivisible, but I am talking arithmetic – not geometry – when it comes to infinite smallness. Sheesh, as Archimedes once said to a pedantic Pythagorean.
