Untied

Though we must be in this world, we must not get wrapped up in its system.
Jesus made this clear in so many ways.  The Word makes this clear in so many ways.  Even the poet writes

I must die the death
if I shall know the breath
that lasts forever.
If I give it up,
He will take the cup
and leave me never!
There are so many things
to which the old man clings-
surrender I must,
oh, but so much more
Jesus has in store
and will entrust!

Jesus makes it very clear that there is very little in this life that is worth clinging to.  Have you discovered that truth yet?  It is something that we must learn before He can release the greater gifts...even in this life!

Thank you for your thoughtful present of having written this article. The message seems to be given to me specifically. Our son also had a lot to learn from this – though he was the individual that found your site first. Most of us can't imagine a more superb present than a gift to encourage that you do more.
