Day 123: 1 Kings 6-7; Luke 23:26-43; Day 25 Prayer Journey

Rocks have featured in all our readings (I just had to read to the end of Luke 23). The solid, hewn rock of Solomon's temple had to be magnificent, the whole completed building a wonder to behold. Remember the disciples marveling at the rebuilt structure's beauty and seeming invincibility (Mark 13:1-2). Jesus' prophecy came true...all that's left of the temple is 'the Wailing Wall.' Then, they buried Jesus' dead body in a rock (Luke 23:53) and sealed the entrance with a rock. We know how invincible that rock was...NOT! The empty tomb is witness to the only Rock upon which to build one's life, the Solid Rock!

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand... ("The Solid Rock", Edward Mote)

Celebrate! Tell the world!
