Christ is My Rock

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11

Recommended reading: 1 Corinthians 3

Edward More was born into poverty in London. His parents would not allow a Bible in their house, but somehow Edward heard the gospel as a teenager and came to Christ. He became a skilled carpenter and owned his own cabinet shop. One
morning it came to him to write a hymn on the gracious experience of being a Christian. One day in 1834 he wrote four verses of the hymn, “The Solid Rock.” At the age of 55 he gave up his carpentry and became a pastor for the Baptist
Church in Horsham, Sussex, where he ministered for 21 years. He passed away at the age of 77.

The prayer for the week is a verse from the hymn which is left out of most hymnals today: I trust His righteous character, His council, promise, and His power; His honor and His Name’s at stake to save me from the burning lake. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. Amen
