Biblical, battle-tested, real-life help for "living by faith in the Son of God" (Galatians 2:20). — Steve Fuller

Build Your Life On Christ The Solid Rock (4-Min Worship Video)

Christ the Solid Rock

We are always living by faith in something.

We are always building our lives on something which we think will secure a satisfying future for us.

So how can we tell what we are building on?

What helps me is to look at what I desire the most — fear losing the most — obey the most.

When I ask these questions I see that too often what I build on is —

  • impressing other people
  • financial security
  • having good health
  • entertainment

So — what’s wrong with these?

They are all sinking sand

They can’t fully satisfy me now.

They can’t secure my satisfaction in the future.

But there’s good news —

There is a solid rock

Jesus Christ.

He is the rock that lasts forever and satisfies fully.

His blood and righteousness — accessed by faith alone — free me from God’s wrath and secure for me God’s love forever.

His unchanging grace is constant — loving me, caring for me, doing everything necessary to bring me the joy of beholding Him forever.

His oath and His covenant are rock-solid secure — to keep me persevering in the faith, and to use every trial to bring me even closer to Him.

So —

How can I build on Christ?

By faith alone.

By turning from whatever else I’m trusting to satisfy me — and turning to Him.

By coming to Him as I am — weak, needy, sinful.

By confessing my sins and receiving assurance of complete forgiveness.

By asking for the Spirit’s work to strengthen my faith and change my heart.

By setting my heart on His promises so my faith is strengthened and my heart is changed.

By trusting Him as my all-satisfying Treasure — and pursuing Him as my all-satisfying Treasure.

    “Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits,
    who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
    who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
    who satisfies you with good
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” -Psalm 103:2-5

    Who else can forgive our sins?
    Who else can heal our bodies & souls?
    Who else can save us from eternal death?
    Who else can fill us with unlimited unconditional love?
    Who else can satisfy our every desire with goodness?
    Who else can renew our strength like that of an eagle’s?

    Who is the solid Rock who never fails?

    Christ alone!
