The Only Thing Worth Having
Mark 8:35: For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel*s, the same shall save it.
God nowhere tells us to give up things for the sake of giving them up. He tells us to give them up for the sake of the only thing worth having . . . life with Himself. It is a question of loosening the bands that hinder the life, and immediately (when) those bands are loosened . . . we enter into a relationship with God . . .
Anything that keeps us permanently or intermittently from enjoying a Savior-saved one, Lover-beloved one, Father-child, Master-servant, King-subject, Leader-follower relationship with God will certainly prove to be not worth it.
