Rock Solid

What is your faith like today? Is it Rock Solid? Is it a Big Boulder of Belief? Or is it a puny little pebble.

When it seems like we're stuck between a rock and a hard place, it's encouraging to know that we have a Solid Rock to lean on - the Rock of our Salvation, Jesus Christ.

There's not much solid ground in this world we live in. Sometimes things seem so unstable and unsure. Things are changing around us at an ever increasing pace. Sin is no longer sin. Right is considered wrong and wrong is considered right. Where is our foundation? Where is the the solid rock on which to build our lives?
The Prophet Isaiah writes, "Look to the Rock from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from which you were dug."
So we look to Jesus, the Chief Cornerstone, the Rock of our Salvation. With Peter (the Rock), we confess that Jesus is "the Christ, the Son of the Living God. And with the hymnwriter we sing "On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand."
