In Christian Devotedness, A.N. Groves expounds the Lord Jesus' teaching concerning stewardship of material possessions, exhorting all Christians to trust God to supply their needs.
From the Preface: "The purpose of this little book is to show that the dedication demonstrated by the early disciples, is without exception, enforced by the commands of our Saviour. And not only that, but it is illustrated by the conduct of the apostles and early Christians. The author therefore asks that all sincere disciples of Christ carefully weigh what is written here in the balance of the Sanctuary, not the balance of the world." "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." - Matthew 6
A.N. Groves put into personal practice the principles of Christian devotedness which he advocates in this audiobook, and proved the possibility and blessing of accepting the teaching of the Lord literally. This booklet had a major impact upon George Müller (who married Groves' sister Mary), and through him on James Hudson Taylor and many other significant Christian figures.
