The Rubbing Limb

I was quite amused the other day while watching a horse use the old rubbing limb in order fulfill a need in his life. For places he could not scratch by himself, he positioned his body under the rubbing limb and moved in such away to get the relief he needed.

As I thought about that old horse who for years had been going to the rubbing limb for relief, it made me aware of the need we all have in our lives.  That need is the forgiveness of sins. By ourselves we cannot solve the sin problem in our own life; like the old horse, we need help. The answer to the horse's need is the rubbing limb; the answer to our need is Jesus Christ.  Jesus can and will fulfill all the needs in our life.

So, like the old horse, that goes to the rubbing limb, let us go to Jesus Christ, who is the answer to all our needs.  As the apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus".
