The Solid Rock

(1) Because if you’re a goody-two shoes, you’d better wise up and realize that without Christ’s precious blood, it makes no difference how good you think you are;
(2) If you haven’t given your heart and life to Christ, your only hope is in Him, not on suddenly thinking positive thoughts all the time, being happy-happy and reading self help books.
“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;

in ev’ry high and stormy gale
my anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand.”
(Edward Mote)

Like 15:20-21

(Micah 7:19)  Sinking sand is no more.  The Solid Rock is forever!   Continue reading “Sinking Sand/Solid Rock – An Anthology #16 Epilogue”
