They drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:4
The Lord Jesus is the Rock of our salvation. How often do we, intentionally or unintentionally, “lightly esteem” Him by not giving Him His rightful place, or have we “forgotten” Him by not listening to Him and obeying His voice? He is our Creator and our Saviour and He is worthy to have first place in our lives. —E. C. B.
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand. —Edward Mote
