My ROCK

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY

THE ROCK OF MY SALVATION

“The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.” —2 Samuel 22:47

No graver danger threatens the believer than that of forgetting that he was redeemed—forgetting even in the joy of realized life what our salvation cost, and what is the rock foundation of our faith. To meet this need our Savior pictures Himself not merely as the Rock of Ages, and our Strong Rock of Refuge, but the Rock of our Salvation. Here, in Him and upon His merit and atoning grace, we were saved from among the lost. Let us glory in this precious name and never forget that He was “wounded for our transgressions” and “that he bore our sins in his own body on the tree.”

My thoughts

As I was reading and then typing this here, I found myself singing the words from the song “By His Wounds” as sung by Mac Powell, Mark Hall, Steven Curtis Chapman, Brian Littrell:

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

We are healed by Your sacrifice
And the life that You gave
We are healed for You paid the price
By Your grace we are saved
We are saved

He was pierced for our transgressions
And crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

We are healed by Your sacrifice
And the life that You gave
We are healed for You paid the price
By Your grace we are saved
We are saved

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed
And by His wounds, by His wounds

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

How about you? Have you admitted that you are a sinner? Do you believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins? And have you confessed your sins and acknowledged Jesus Christ as the Savior and Lord of your life?

What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus…
