Numerous voices tell us constantly that there is no such thing as impossible. You can do whatever you want to do and you can be whatever you want to be. And this extends to obeying God’s commands.

Many of our problems in living for Jesus stem from the root problem that we think we can do it. We think that we have the power within us. We are told we can do it. We know we are supposed to be able to do it. 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.

That is the madness of our lives. It is the slavery of the impossible.

This book 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)

Author Jonty Allcock looks at eight impossible commands and four steps that will help us depend on God, bringing us to spirit-led obedience – I can’t, I’m sorry, Please help, and Let’s go!

Jonty Allcock is one of the most engaging gospel communicators in the UK today. He combines exegetical faithfulness with creativity and relevant practical application. In his latest book, he shows Christians that God’s power enables us to live a life of joyful obedience. This uplifting and challenging book will liberate believers from the despair and frustration of feeling that God asks us to do the impossible. Whilst God does give us humanly “impossible” commands, the glorious good news is that he makes it possible for us to obey them! If you want your life to be transformed from crushing and dutiful legalism to heartfelt longing to obey then read this book.

Here is an encouraging and digestible book about obedience! Grounded in Bible truth, these chapters give not just an argument but a call that's clear and full of hope. The biblical path to obedience is plainly laid out, with the necessary first step: "I can't." But what a blessing to consider the subsequent steps that in fact lead us to obey: "I'm sorry"; "Please help"; and "Let's Go." I'm grateful for this call to follow the Lord Jesus with joyful obedience.

I am delighted to commend “Impossible Commands”. Writing with the same thrilling clarity as in his preaching, Jonty offers us a fresh and exciting perspective upon the apparently impossible commands of God, giving us real hope of experiencing the joy of obedience that Christians long for. I thoroughly recommend this book!”
