Here is another quote from Paul David Tripp’s book Journey To The Cross; A 40-Day Lenten Devotional.
God intends suffering to pry open our hands wo we let go of the things of this earth and hold more tightly to Jesus.Paul David Tripp – Journey To The Cross; A 40-Day Lenten Devotional (Day 4, pg 29)
What are you holding to tight?
Sit at the foot of the cross and Let It Go. Hold tight to Jesus instead.
This week make some quiet time and reflect on what you are holding on to that you can cast aside and hold on to Jesus.
