Weakness runs in a tandem, and actually becomes a perk when the tandem operates. Idea is that you get moment-by-moment confirmation and demonstration, of God's Love. Which after all, is really the Love On Trial, with your love for Him, being secondary. It's a wild ride, and even harder than anything Christians can dream up as 'sacrificial'. For the old sin nature gets its rocks off, by sacrificing. So ironically, the biggest sacrifice of all, is not to sacrifice at all. God deeds means you're not doing anything. And that, is the hardest thing of all.
Your motive for going forward is thus taxed the most, by wanting God, since that will excite the sin nature the most. By wanting God, rather than wanting to think well of self for wanting God, that's the tricky surgery going on.. until you die. No work that man can do, is as difficult, as this DIVORCE between those two wants.
So to get those two wants divorced, a new TANDEM (think of 'bicycle' or buddies in a relay race) must be created: tandem of wanting, and knowledge of Bible running in your head. The one motivates the other to keep going, 2Cor5:14, Eph 3:15-19. You'll need to know both of those passages well, for this audio to be meaningful. The 2Cor5:14 passage is mistranslated 'compelled', should be 'holds together', Greek verb 'sunecho' (sun=together, echo means to have hold grasp). My pastor spent time explaining the mistranslation, so maybe your pastor has also. Point is, you can look it up in any lexicon and see that the verb is mistranslated by someone who wanted to think God a tyrant.
