“To leave all for Christ is leaving nothing and finding all.”
~ Mary Baker Eddy, “In my True Light and Life, MBE Collections,” p. 581.
People often get afraid when they are confronted with the Christian demand to leave all for Christ. But there is nothing to fear when one understands that all real substance will never be found in a material world. It is found in Christ.
Christ is the power and presence of God at work on our behalf giving us everything we need to be healthy and strong, provided for, safe and secure.
When you have Christ, you have everything!
To leave all for Christ, means to leave a limited material sense of things behind that would cover up God’s goodness in front of us. Once the material sense is dropped for the spiritual, God’s reality grows clearer, and real substance is found.
Life is a joy in Christ! Go for it with gusto!
