Christ The Rock

~ Jesus Christ Is The Rock ~

 
Rock Of Salvation ~ “The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted, the Rock of my salvation!” (2 Samuel 22:47). 
 
Rock Of Shelter ~ “From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I” (Psalm 61:2).
 
Rock Of Security ~ “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock” (Matthew 7:24-25).
 
Rock Of Refreshment ~ “And all drank the same spiritual drink.  For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ” (1 Corinthians 10:4).
 
Rock Of Exaltation ~ “This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone’” (Acts 4:11). 
 
summary: Consider how Mark opens his Gospel: “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus [Savior] Christ [The Messiah, The Anointed One], the Son of God [His divine nature]” (Mark 1:1). 
 
A Savior is our first need! He is our Rock of Salvation and our Rock of Shelter
 
Second we find that He is God’s Anointed One to be our Prophet (teacher). He is also anointed as our Priest (interceding for us). He us our Rock of Security and our Rock of Refreshment.  He is anointed to be King who deserves our obedience. 
 
Third we find that He is God. As God He is able to do far more than we can ask or think. Today, He is exalted by His people as their Rock of Exaltation, and one day will be universally recognized as King of Kings.
 
the bottom line:   Jesus said, “Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the Rock:and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the Rock.  But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell.  And great was its fall” (Matthew 7:24-27). 
 
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15).  This is the most important question you will ever answer.  If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
