  Today, we had a wonderful worship service as the Men’s Band played, we had communion, a wonderful Smelt Feed, and a baptism.  There was a fun moment in the baptism.  As I was baptizing the beautiful baby, who was staring right at me, she reached out and grabbed my cross that is around my neck.  After putting water on her head, her Dad lifted her up and she held onto that cross, until I had to pry it away from her. 

   There is something in the act of that beautiful child.  We cling to the cross of Christ.  We cling to the cross for hope, forgiveness, and promise, the promise of eternal life.  We cling to the cross in the midst of our suffering and pain, in our despair and anxiety.  We cling to the cross because the cross of Christ is our life.  It is our salvation. It is the thing we can rely on when all else seems lost, when everything else seems to be slipping away.  It is the power of God for us.

  In life, we can sometimes feel like we have nothing to hold onto.  Life can seem fleeting, unstable, and unpredictable.  We need something that we can count, something that gives us strength.  That thing is the cross of Christ.  It is not a stumbling block for us.  It is the power of God  It is hope for in that sin is defeated, death is defeated, the devil is defeated.  This cross is a sign of God’s love for us, something you can always count on and always trust.

  May you, like that sweet baby today, cling to the cross.  May it give you hope and comfort and may you know every moment that you are loved and cared for by your Savior Jesus Christ.
