Cleave unto the Lord

While reading in Acts, I came across this fantastic verse. You know how some verses seem to just pop out at certain times in your life? Well, this one did for me just now.

It speaks of the time right after the Lord had saved many people in Antioch, and the church in Jerusalem had heard of this and sent Barnabas to go there. In Acts 11:23 it reads, Who, (speaking of Barnabas) when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

What does Barnabas exhort these people to do?

With purpose of heart, cleave unto the Lord.

Could there be a better exhortation?? I think not. I want to take this to heart. I want to receive this exhortation and encourage you to do the same.

Thanks for reading, friends.
