Jesus is the rock on which we stand. “Neither is there any rock like our God” There is no spiritual are moral flaw in his character. Jesus, who is the judge of the world is perfectly righteous (II. Cor.5:10)
There is nothing in his feeling are temperaments that would tend to influence him to do anything but the strictest justice. We see that the destinies of mankind is in his hand, therefore he must be absolutely without spot in his moral character, “Shall not the judge of all the do right?” (Gen.18:25)
In order to do right at all times he must be absolutely incorruptible and undefiled.
God does not only deal with moral laws that pertain to man, his law is so holy that it penetrates into the spirit, it legislates our thoughts and feeling, it passes sentence upon hidden motives, as well as upon visible actions. David stated in (Ps.119: 96) “I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.” “Neither is there any rock like our God.”
He is so holy and unchangeable in his character and his everlasting holiness is a guarantee that he will always be the same in thought, in word, and deed, (Mal. 3:6) declares “I am the Lord, I change not.”
It is the instinct of humanity to reach out after something less changeable than themselves, to endeavor to lay hold of same object to which, as to a rock, they may anchor for rest and security.
Lest take about the character of God a little more. He has all power, to know his power is the root of immortality “I am the resurrection, and the life,” (St. John 11:25)
He is unchangeable and faithful, I change not with reference to his merciful covenant. He is eternal. “From everlasting to everlasting.” Jesus said “All power is given unto in heaven and earth” (Mt.28:18)
‘:Jesus is the same yesterday, and today and forever” (Heb.13:8) The apostle Paul stated in (I.Cor.10:4) “That rock was Christ”
Jesus is the highest and only perfect manifestation of God, Jesus said to Philip, “Philip, he that have seem me hath seen the Father” the Father and i are one. (St.John 14:9) Jesus is superiority to others forces and powers.
We are weak within ourselves, our very strength is weakness compared with his infinite power.
We are changeable, people are liars, false, unworthy, and disappointing object of trust and we have seen that mankind is unstable in all his ways.
Our works here on earth will one day pass away. Jesus, our rock endures for ever and we need not to to expect true or lasting gratification from any created object. (Isa. 2:22) say, “cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils,”
Let us view God’s relationship with his people. “Our God” is our support We are those who live in direct fellowship with him, and show the reality of our fellowship by walking in the light and keeping his commandment.
To us he has promised to be all that our true welfare requires. Jesus is the immovable foundation on which we may stand firm, strong and secure, and he is our fortification.
He protects us against the evil one, and Jesus is our shadow against the heat, he is our refuge in the midst of the storms of life, Christ bears the tempest that would have fallen on each of us “He that beliveth shall not make haste, or be fearful.”
Jesus Christ is our source of strength, of peace and of consolation, he is our fountain, and the source of our spiritual spring.
Christ Jesus has made his claim on us. We are to trust in Jesus, stand in him in times of troubles, and when it is all said and done, make him our dwelling place and residence.
Let us make Christ our portion and our exceeding joy, let it not be just for one week, or one mouth, are one year, but for ever. (Isa.26:4) declares “Trust in the Lord for ever, for the lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”
