The Solid Rock

The news from Paris hit like a ton of bricks. A painful reminder of the evil that exists and the fact that this world is not our home. In the days since, my Facebook newsfeed has been flooded with posts that argue for or against gun control, for or against allowing Syrian refugees into our country, for or against various military strategies and foreign policies. These are important issues. We need to discuss them. I don’t deny that. But (and please hear the gentleness with which I ask this of myself as well as you), where is our trust?

May we be able to say whole-heartedly with the Psalmist, King David, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God” (Psalm 20:7, NIV).


 

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

~ “The Solid Rock”, Edward Mote
