Are you leaning on a crutch? Some turn to alcohol or drugs for support. Many feed their shrinking ego with eating disorders. We all feel feeble at times and reach out for extra support. Life problems knock us off balance; and we are in grave danger of falling! Have you ever heard it said that faith in God is only a crutch? Trust in Him is seen as a sign of weakness. Is that accurate? I freely confess that I lean on Jesus. He holds my hand and if I slip and fall He lifts me back on my feet.
My crutch is constructed from a cross. It offers great strength and security to all who receive the Lord. Christ died with arms extended in forgiveness and love. To those who reject Him, the cross is foolishness! “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18 NKJ).” I will never stand on my own two feet. I choose to rely on His cross as my constant crutch.
