Rock Solid

rock solidThe Psalmist says, “Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout to the Rock of our salvation.” (Ps. 95:1) Rock speaks of stability. It says we’re basing our lives and the values we live by upon something that’s firm and can weather life’s storm.
In this case, it’s our salvation. Jesus is that Rock. He is our salvation. We can count on Him being the same today, tomorrow and into eternity.
Where you put your trust is crucial. Is it in something firm or in something that can shift and evolve over time? I just read about a new form of politics. It’s called “the personal is political.” It’s a set of beliefs that can change depending upon the circumstances. It allows the person’s heart to rule over their mind.
This kind of politician used to be called a “flip-flopper,” which was a bad thing. Bad is now good as “flip-flopper” has been reworded to “personal politics.” This person can say one thing one day, but evolve into something totally different the next. How can you trust someone who has no convictions based in something solid?
The main thing wrong with personal politics is that the person’s heart and mind are supposedly a rock solid basis for making decisions. What if they both are wrong, which so often is the case? We know this to be true because they are what drive us to take our drugs of choice! You can feel one way today and completely different about it tomorrow depending upon your circumstances. Why then should we trust what we think or feel as the starting point for decisions?
No, we need a source outside ourselves, outside our heart and mind, to show us what is true. Jesus is that source. He is our Rock. He is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” You can trust Him, not your feelings or thinking, when He tells you what to do. Living out what He says will set you free from your drugs of choice (John 8:31-32). Your freedom is personal to Him, but not politically expedient. He will be the same today, tomorrow and forever. His Word will never change. It’s rock solid.
