"Rejoice always." "Don't be afraid." "Give cheerfully." What do we do when God's commands sound impossible? Most of us find opt-outs and excuses, or pretend we're doing better than we are. Author Jonty Allcock calls this "the madness of our lives" and "the slavery of the impossible". There is a better way. What if obedience could be a life-giving joy rather than a job, a delight instead of duty? In this book, Jonty shows us that by facing up to the impossible commands of Jesus, we come to the end of our own will and determination, and end up at Jesus' feet. We find ourselves in the hands of a God who can do all things. Where we fail to obey, there is grace. Where we succeed in obeying, there we find the miracle of the Spirit active within us. This book takes us through four steps - I can't, I'm sorry, please help and let's go - that will help us look to ourselves less and depend on God more, enabling a spirit-led joyful obedience.
