Jesus Is Your Rock

In several places in the Bible, for example in 1 Corinthians 10:4, Jesus is referred to as the Rock. The apostle Paul goes on to tell us in Colossians 2:7 that we are to be rooted and grounded in Jesus.

If we get our roots wrapped around Jesus Christ, we are in good shape. But if we get them wrapped around anything or anyone else, we are in trouble.

No person or thing is going to be as solid and dependable as Jesus. That’s why it is important to point people to Jesus. Humans are always liable to failure. But Jesus Christ isn’t. Put your hope wholly and unchangeably in Him. Not in man, not in circumstances, not in anything or anyone else.

If you don’t put your hope and faith in the Rock of your salvation, you are headed for disappointment, which leads to discouragement and devastation. We should have so much confidence in God’s love for us that no matter what comes against us, we know deep inside that He is with us and He will never let us down.

We are bankrupt in our own ability apart from Christ. Without God, we are helpless; with Him nothing is impossible to us.
