The Rock of Ages

August 12th, 2007

The Being Behind the Belief

“…and the Rock was Christ”

(1 Corinthians 10:4)

Introduction: Today’s message is about the influence of rock formation in Christian belief.

I. Christian Hymn – “Rock of Ages” (Augustus M. Toplady)

II. “Rock” – A Noun of Renown (When have you last heard of a noun as—person, place, and thing?)

A. Rock as _________________ (Ex. 33:22)

B. Rock as _________________ (Deut. 32:4)

C. Rock as _________________ (Isa. 26:4)

Conclusion: T. B. Larimore once said of the region Caesarea Philippi (Matthew 16:13,18)—“It was in the presence of this rock-founded, rock-builded, rock-bounded, rock-surrounded, rock-protected, rock-shadowed city that Jesus, the Rock of Ages, the rock for sinners cleft, said to Peter, “Upon this rock I will build my church” (The Man from Mars Hill, 73).
