JOINED TO THE LORD
The apostle Paul speaks of our being joined to the Lord, 1 Corinthians 6:17; Ephesians. 2:21.
Our union with Him can never be broken and therefore we are eternally secure.
The story is told of a shipwreck in the Georgian Bay of Canada. The mate of the ship leaped into a boat with six or seven strong men and a timid girl. One by one the strong men lost their hold as the boat was turned over and over by the raging billows. Every one perished except the girl, the reason being that the mate had taken the precaution to bind her with ropes to the prow of the boat. She drifted to the shore where she was rescued and she loved for many years to relate her way of deliverance. How thankful we should be if the Lord has so joined us to Him!
