Like a tree whose roots are firmly planted in a solid rock or like a building with a strong foundation, so is our faith in Christ. It cannot be overthrown by the wiles of the Devil, if it be indeed genuine. But a tree must grow branches and leaves, and a building must be erected on a foundation. Even so, the teaching of the Word helps us to progress and walk in that faith that we first received.
And we pray:
Lord God, let us be sure of our strong foundation. Let us stand strong in faith in the midst of every storm of life and humbly but confidently sing “We have an anchor that keeps the soul steadfast and sure though the billows roll, anchored to The Rock that cannot move, grounded firm and deep in The Savior’s Love.” Amen.
