I shouldn’t have to explain why grabbing is awesome. It looks cleaner it differentiates your tricks, and it shows grace, style, and control. You can tell when someone just slaps at their board and when someone actually grabs it and holds on.
When Paul was writing his letter to the Philippian Church, he wrote “It’s not that I have already reached this goal or have already been perfected, but I pursue it, so that I may grab hold of it because Christ grabbed hold of mefor just this purpose.” Paul knew that once Jesus grabbed a hold of his life, he was committed to the purpose that Jesus had for him. Paul recognized his purpose and he responded by grabbing hold of Jesus. The correct response when Jesus grabs hold of you is to grab hold of Him and hang on it, because He is going to clean you up, differentiate you, and provide you with grace, style, and control over the sins in your life.
So don’t just slap at your relationship with Jesus…grab and hold on tight. Then He will transform your life from the inside out.
