Years ago there was a gentleman whose hobby was collecting old books. He was a guest in a friend’s home one evening, and while waiting was invited to browse around his host’s library. In doing so, he came upon a rare book. On mentioning it to the friend, he was told to take the book as a gift and momento of his visit.


Three weeks later he received an envelope with three yellow and worn pages from the book he had been given. A note from the friend said, "These pages belong to you. While tyding up my library these fluttered to the floor. I’m sending them to you, for when I gave the book I thought I was giving it entirely, and you must have these pages too."


When we come to Christ for salvation, we come giving our total selves, according to our understanding at that time. As we grow in understanding and experience other matters come to light and we find that we must make further commitments to God. We say, in effect, "Lord, I meant to give you all, but I’ve found these other matters in the tyding process you carry on in my life. Now these things belong to you."
