Impossible Commands [eBook]
In our culture there is no such thing as impossible. We’re told that as long as you put your mind to it, you can do anything! So we instinctively look to ourselves for the power to obey God’s commands.
We know we are supposed to obey God. We think that if we aren’t able to do it there is something wrong with us. So we all pretend we are doing it, when deep down we know we aren’t!
Author Jonty Allcock calls this ‘the madness of our lives’ and ‘the slavery of the impossible’. He shows us that embracing the impossibility of our own obedience leads not to despair, but to true freedom as we look to the God who can do all things:
“With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27)
This book takes us through four steps that will help us look to ourselves less and depend on God more, enabling spirit-led joyful obedience.
