About The Power of Obedience Series
Obedience is not just a reflexive performance of God’s will. It is richer than we know, and its power is known by too few. Would you be one of them?
The motive of God’s will is love and the intention of His whole plan is kindness, so His will cannot be anything but liberating and wonderful. (“In love He predestined us…” Eph. 1:4-5) But the Adam in us suspects His will is our worst nightmare.
“When desperation exceeds our fears, progress begins. When it comes to touching God’s heart, other than for a few essential truths, unity of desperation is more crucial than unity of doctrine.”
