Grace and peace family,
“You are to cling to the Lord your God.” – These were Joshua’s parting words to wayward Israel, just before his death. (Joshua 23:8 )
CLING : ” To hold fast to something, as by grasping, sticking, embracing, or winding around”.
As a wet raincoat would CLING to your back.
As a person on the verge of death would CLING to life.
CLINGING conveys the sense of desperation: That there is no other viable option.
QUESTION: ARE YOU CLINGING TO CHRIST?
Your bank account?
SELF SUFFICIENCY is the arrogant assumption that I can go it alone… without God.
CLINGING is the humble acknowledgment that I must be intimately connected to God for life to make sense and to be worth living.
QUESTION: Are you CLINGING to Christ? Or do you have it so together that you can go it alone? If so, are you willing to pay the price of independence?
Have a sobering Saturday.
“We are Mount Zion”
