“For I will never leave you, or forsake you.”
It’s funny, but it seems that our civilization claim to fame revolves around this grand idea of inventing good adhesives. Chemists and manufacturers have astutely given us wonderful glues and epoxies. One of the more recent on the market is a compound known as cyanoacrylate or “Superglue”. Perhaps you have seen their ads? A man wearing a hard hat is lifted off the ground by a crane after a drop is applied to the hat.
Now that is the ultimate stickability! He wiggles, and strains but he is stuck (literally). It seems to be a swell product, and marketed quite well. Everyone should have on hand a tube or two. You never know when you might need it.
The Lord Jesus has created that powerful bond between us. His blood is sticky, and once applied there is a permanence and a connection between Him and us. I think it was Dostoevsky who said, “Those who have been infected by Jesus Christ will never, ever be the same again.” Even with the strange metaphor, the principle is very true.
The blood of Jesus is a tenacious thing. We are cemented to the Lord, locked by His determined love. Some will try to escape this determined relationship, but experience teaches us that it is highly unlikely this can be done. Romans 8 is directly involved,
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[p] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39, NLT
Dear saint, God is determined to bring you home to Him. You and He are bonded together, and God’s tenacious love will never let you alone. People who apostatize are still being pursued, and those of us who are struggling along, are also being pursued. And those of us who are managing, are also being pursued. That is the nature of the love God has for you. Don’t ask me why, but He truly loves you!

I encounter so many people, especially via the ministry work I’ve been assigned, who REALLY believe that God does not love them. I think I’ll read your message tomorrow, they are broken believers and of course I stand with them

Thanks for the pingback to “Dying Changes Everything”. It is good to come here and meet you and learn more about you. Keep up the good Word and work!
TY. Your post was great, the link just had to be shared. Keep the faith, brother.
(continued) … I had never considered the analogy of an adhesive to the power of the covenant. Your blog post is pouring oil in the wounds of betrayals to see the personalized permanence of the Divine Betrothal.
So glad it spoke to you. It’s comforting to know that we are stuck to Him. He intends to take us home to Himself!
You have really encouraged me! TY!!
Thank you pastor Bryan! Woke up ‘knowing’ that there was a message for me in my inbox.
I had a commercial sign business back in the day when the computer-cut self-adhesive vinyl lettering transformed the signs industry. My buddies called me the ‘queen of adhesives’. I had never considered the analogy of
