HOW FIRM IS YOUR FOUNDATION?

(Psalm 11:3)  “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

The answer to that question is, “Nothing.”  Thank God the righteous stand on a foundation that can never be destroyed, i. e., on the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.  It is absolutely necessary for those who know the Lord Jesus Christ, to see the correlation between Jesus Christ, the Living Word (John 1) and the Bible, God’s written Word.  Jesus Christ has been revealed to us in the Bible, and no where else.  If we had no Bible, we would have no truth about Jesus Christ.  We would have only what enemies of Biblical Christianity have passed off for Christianity down through the centuries following Jesus Christ and the apostles. Therefore, Christ as He is revealed in Holy Scripture is the foundation on which all true Christians stand: There is no other foundation, in fact, “All Other Ground is Sinking Sand” (William B. Bradbury).

This is good news indeed.  Jesus is our Rock; our Foundation; our High Priest after the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 7:15-17).  “Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25.)  Do you want to be entangled in a system of religion that says salvation is any other way than what the Bible teaches?  The Bible teaches that salvation is by grace alone; through faith alone; in Jesus Christ alone; as He is revealed in the Bible alone.

There is no mediator between God and humankind except Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:5).  He alone is the way of salvation (Acts 4:12).  Colossians 1:13-20, puts it as succinctly as it can possibly be put: “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption and the forgiveness of sins.  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.  For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things were created through him and for him.  And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  And he is the head of the body, the church.  He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.  For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.”

Once again I ask:  How firm is your foundation?  If it isn’t the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, then it isn’t firm at all!  Make your calling and election sure this very day!

From someone who cares about your soul, a sinner saved by God’s grace,
