A complete dedication of material wealth is enforced by the commands of our Savior, and illustrated by the practice of His apostles. As believers, we have the responsibility and privilege of storing up treasures in heaven by using our wealth for the glory of God. In this way, we declare and illustrate our love for Christ.
Anthony Norris Groves, 1795-1853, was a well-to-do dentist who left luxury and wealth in England to preach the gospel in Bagdad, then in India. He put into personal practice the principle of Christian devotedness which he advocates in this pamphlet, and proved the possibility and blessing of accepting the teachings of the Lord literally.
