It is the secret of true discipleship to bear the cross, to acknowledge the death sentence that has been passed on self, and to deny any right that self has to rule over us.
From Luke 9:23: “Then He [Jesus] said to them all, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'”

We have a God who delights in impossibilities.
From Ephesians 1:18-19: “So that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, what are the riches of His glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power for us who believe, according to the working of His great power.”
