Through the Eye of a Needle

Leave all…and follow Him

That was His answer

I had stolen time out of my day

To hear the Master

(Or so they were calling Him)

I had simply asked

What must I do

To see this thing through?

He took me to the law

Familiar ground

And diligently followed

Best I could

Obedience, reverence, clean tongue

Nary a misdemeanor

From youngest days.

And wealth had come.

Hadn’t Heaven smiled?

But now the Carpenter says:

“Drop it, disdain it, divide it

…And simply follow.”

Not me, not now.

Why does this guy

Raise such excitement

Anyway?

(The Lord hath need of him. – Luke 19:31

It would be well for us if we would learn to hold everything we have at Christ’s disposal. When the owner of the colt asked the disciples, “Why loose ye the colt?” they said, “The Lord hath need of him.” Then the owner let the beast go.

This is the way we ought to hold all we have. Whenever the Lord needs anything we own, we are to let Him have it. Sometimes He asks for things that are very dear to us, things that it almost breaks our hearts to part with. But we are instantly to let Him take what He will.
