…but i won’t let go

When we have come to know the Truth, so that the Truth can and will set a person free, we sometime’s keep a little back for us. Let’s call it our “pet sin”. Yes, we know that we all have fallen short of God’s glory, so why not keep something back, right? When the Holy Spirit is convicting us that we need to get rid of “it”, it’s time to give it to God rather than holding onto “it”. When we have come to the place where we realize that He is all we need, there is no need to look back to pursue, take or to grab a hold of what had been broken off. Be ready, stay focused & never look back.
“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead”. Phil 3:13
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Matt 6:24
