“And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” 1 Corinthians 10:4Text — 1 Corinthians 10:1-6
A song writer wrote thus “Jesus the Rock, the Solid Rock, Jesus the Solid Rock, my soul has found a refuge in Him, Jesus the Solid Rock.” In geography, rocks can be described as the naturally occurring aggregate of solid mineral matter that constitute a significant part of the earth’s crust. They could also be defined as mass of stone projecting out of the ground or water. Spiritually or figuratively, a rock means something that is strong, stable and dependable; a person who provides security or support to another. Jesus Christ is the only Personality that perfectly fits into this definition.
Jesus, the Solid Rock is unshakeable, unmovable, unbendable, undestroyable and unconquerable. Jesus said to Peter “…. upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18) The devil cannot have power over the church which is built on the Rock of ages. Jesus the Solid Rock symbolizes the shield and protection for a child to hide in and be protected and saved from the enemy. But only true friends of Jesus can hide under Him. A sinner cannot be under the protection of God, as he is exposed to the attack of the enemy at any time. Why not run to Jesus today to receive shelter? This can only be possible by confessing your sins to Jesus and surrendering your life to Him.
Prayer for today
Jesus, hide me under Your Rock so I can be safe from all harms.
