Rock Solid

Wow! What a wonderful Lord and Savior who would allow us to become a part with Him in what He is doing in the world. Upon the Solid Rock we stand!

No other foundation can any man lay, than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11). Jesus Christ is a firm, immovable foundation. He will never shift or change. He is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). We need not fear, for we are secure upon the Chief Cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20; 1 Peter 2:6-8). All else is sinking sand that will end in ruin and utter destruction. We have a hope that is both sure and stedfast (Hebrews 6:19)!

“We are His building” (1 Corinthians 3:9) both individually as a part of the construction of our Lord’s church, and collectively so as being built up a “spiritual house” (1 Peter 2:5). The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ our Lord, yet the “living stones” from every nation and language group on earth is growing up into a “holy temple” in the Lord by the Spirit (Ephesians 2:21-22). The glorious unity of the Spirit of God’s work is on full display in the singular design of this architectural wonder, called the church.

How is it that someone can become situated on the Rock which cannot move, and grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love? It is none other than by grace through faith in the shed blood, and resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (Ephesian 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10; 1 Peter 1:2-3)! That “someone” could be you this very day, for “. . . behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). The  building of your life upon that precious stone, that is the Lord himself, which the builders rejected (Psalm 118:22), is possible by belief, a belief that will reap the benefits of eternal salvation of which you will never regret (Romans 10:11-13; Romans 9:33). My friend, delay no longer, but by faith let Him bring you “up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, And set [your] feet upon a rock, and established [your] goings. 3 And . . . put a new song in [your] mouth, even praise unto [your] God:” (Psalm 40:2–3).
