In today's world, the souls of so many are in jeopardy. We have absolutely no power to save ourselves ~ we can't even grow one extra hair on our own. To be saved, our sins need to be forgiven and only God has that power. He has created us; surely he can save us. Therefore, he alone is the one we're to hold onto. We must let everything else that obstructs us go, no matter how much pain this may cause us. Ultimately, it's what God wants that counts. To go against his will would be sheer folly. He is the gateway for the soul to freedom.
