CLING TO THE LORD

February 13, 2016

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?
Or to:
Your bank account?
Your reputation?
Your capabilities?

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”
