Rock of Ages
For it stands in Scripture: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”—1 Peter 2:6
Notice that it stands. It's a stone unlike any other. A cornerstone cut from the depths of the aged earth. It's qualities—chosen and precious. And who selects this rock? God, of course, the great I am! He chooses and lays it. And it's the best rock, one for the ages. It's plum, level, firm, set, immovable, and sure. And who is this Rock? None other than Jesus Christ! And what is man's response? To believe. And the benefit? The end of all shame.
DO THIS: Rid yourself of your shame—believe.
PRAY THIS: God, I need renewal, washing, and cleansing. I run to the Rock of Ages.
