The Lord Jesus, is our Rock and our salvation. The Bible refers to the Rock, our Savior, in several passages. Here are just a handful.
The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior! (2 Sam 22:47)
The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted. (Ps 18:46)
Blessed be the Lord my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle— (Ps 144:1)
. . . and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. (1 Cor 10:4)
And “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. (1 Pet 2:8)
When the Israelites were in the wilderness, the Lord gave them water from a rock to quench their thirst and to meet their needs. (Neh 9:15; Isa 48:21) The Lord proved Himself more than once to His people as their Provider and their Deliverer.
As the Bible passage shown above demonstrate, Christ is called the Rock, our Savior.
In this day and age, many are offended at the gospel of Jesus Christ. That is why He is also prophesied to be “a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” There are so many religions and ideologies being espoused around the world, that the true path to salvation can be obscured and undermined. Present-day Christianity is under attack.
Jesus was considered a criminal and a blasphemer—so as His followers, we can’t expect much better treatment than what our Lord received. His sentence, unjust though it clearly was, was death. Pilate was so disturbed by it that he washed his hands of all responsibility for it.
However, the Lord lives! Hallelujah! We drink in His glory, holiness, and goodness. We are made righteous by the sacrifices that Jesus made on our behalf. We are reconciled to our Father God, and have a multitude of reasons to exalt and to praise the Lord!
Remember that the Rock is our foundation for faith and for eternal life!
