Moses said, there shall not a hoof be left behind. And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste. Exodus 10:26, and Exodus 12:33. Behold we have forsaken all, and followed thee. Whosoever he be of you, that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:34. And they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not. 1 Corinthians 7:29-31

Christ being my all, self-denial and following him is so easy and pleasant, that there is no need to make a particular work and duty of it. And if I am his property and have entirely devoted myself to him, I neither dare, nor will reserve any thing for myself; and yet I have no reason to be troubled for any thing, but can safely trust and leave all to him. He will certainly take care of me, protect and perfect me in the best manner.

How can I sink with such a prop
As my eternal God,
Who bears the earth’s huge pillars up,
And spreads the heaven’s abroad.

How can I die while Jesus lives,
Who rose and left the dead?
Pardon and grace my soul receives
From mine exalted head.

All that I am and all I have
Shall be for ever thine,
Whatever my duty bids me give,
My cheerful hands resign.

Yet if I might make some reserve,
And duty did not call,
I love my God with zeal so great
That I should give him all.
