If any one can find who wrote the song Hold Me Up, I’d love to know, I know the camera man on Whispering Bill’s Family reunion was the one who wrote it and several others for Gordon Mote and others. Just didn’t catch his name, but he is a fine singer on his own.

Stick Together

April 14, 2012

For years, scientists have wondered how fire ants, whose bodies are denser than water, can survive floods that should destroy them. How do entire colonies form themselves into life rafts that can float for weeks? A Los Angeles Times article explained that engineers from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered that tiny hairs on the ants’ bodies trap air bubbles. This enables thousands of the insects, “which flounder and struggle in the water as individuals,” to ride out the flood when they cling together.

The New Testament speaks often of our need to be connected to other followers of Christ in order to survive and grow spiritually. In Ephesians 4, Paul wrote, “We should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine.” He added, “But, speaking the truth in love, may [we] grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” (vv.14-16).

Alone, we sink; but clinging and growing together in the Lord, we can ride out every storm.

Let’s stick together!

We can’t avoid the tossing storms of life,
And we survive while carried to and fro;
We’ll stick together as we face the strife,
And in God’s strength the victory we shall know. —Hess
Christians stand strong when they stand together.

Read: Ephesians 4:1-16

The whole body, joined and knit together . . . , causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. —Ephesians 4:16
Bible in a Year:
1 Chronicles 1-3
