THE SURE FOUNDATION

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. HEBREWS 13:8

The Lord Jesus Christ is fitly called the everlasting Rock of Ages for He changes not. To Him, both the men of God of old and the apostle citing His words bear witness: “ ‘You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain; and they will all grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will not fail’” (Hebrews 1:10–12 NKJV). Wise, therefore, is the one who builds on Him; who lays Him as the only foundation; who builds only upon His blood and righteousness, upon what He has done and suffered for us. On this cornerstone, the wise one fixes his or her faith, and rests the whole weight of the soul upon it. These are taught of God to say, “Lord, I have sinned! I deserve the nethermost hell, but I am justified freely by Your grace through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ. And the life that I now live, I live by faith in Him who loved me and gave Himself for me. The life I now live is a divine, heavenly life, a life that is hid with Christ in God.” I now live, even in the flesh, a life of love, of pure love both to God and to my fellows. And, thanks be to God, doing all to His glory.
