The Impossible Life

Sunday, May 13, 2012| Message byEric Ludy
The commission of a Christian man is utterly impossible. Even God makes it clear that a man is wholly unable to pull off such a grand and holy life in his own power, strength, grit, and determination. Most Christian men of our day thusly justify their mediocrity, spiritual slovenliness, and gross disregard of the Scriptural command under this ever-convenient banner of "impossibility." But it is high time that the power of the Cross thunders forth in and through the corridors of modern Christian manhood and a heaven- endued expectation takes hold of the manly soul once again. For with man it certainly IS impossible, but with God all things are possible.
