§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Deuteronomy 30:19, 20 (Pt. 4)  Thought./Prayer:  Clinging Vines.  Topics:  2 at end.

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your seed; to love Yahweh your God, to obey his voice, and to cling to him; for he is your life, and the length of your days; that you may dwell in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.. . . “  (WEB)  (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

God says here that he wants us to be clinging vines:  “. . . and to cling to him; . . .”  Actually, now that this has been said, there could be two aspects to it.  Here God gives Moses the words that we are to cling to Him (God).  Just think of a young wide-eyed lemur clinging to mother’s back . . . or opossum little ones piled up on mom.  Yes, He wants to carry us closely, as we cling to Him.

But is it ok to say that we are to be “clinging vines”?  Often we think of someone who is “clingy” to be in some way insufficient to carry on by themselves.  We may think they are clingy because they are needy and can’t get by on their own.  They tend to smother another person.  (Sometimes it seems there’s very little compassion toward them.)

But here perhaps there could be another element.  Jesus is the vine, as we see in John 15:5.  We are the branches.  What do the branches of a grape vine do?  They cling to the vine.  How about a morning glory?  The flowers and leaves cling to the vine.  They cling and vine all over the porch lattice or fence!

Yes, we are to cling to our God.  He doesn’t mind.  He doesn’t get smothered by all of us holding on tight.  He’s big enough to take it!  It’s what He tell us to do.  Cling!  He even tells us that His power is made perfect in weakness (II Corinthians 12:9)!

Families going through life/death situations often need to cling to someone or something.  Well, it’s Someone!  God is the ultimate person for carrying those who cling to Him.  It is up to the rest of us to be ready to share about His willingness to accept those who want to grab onto Him and hold on tight.  We never fall off of God.  A little opossum may accidentally get pushed off of a hairy crowded back.  But God never allows such.  We cling, and we are secure.

Lord, thank you for instructing us to cling to You.  We need to do this.  Sometimes holding on more tightly than at others.  And may we let others know all about this and Your acceptance of all of us who cling.

Topics:  Pray to be able to explain about clinging to God.  Help others to understand how willing he is to have us holding on tightly.
