How You are Known (10) – 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 Saviour 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.”
