"For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his
tabernacle and set me high upon a rock."
Two words are used in Greek: Petros, meaning a detached stone, which translates into “Peter;” and petra, meaning a bedrock. Jesus said, “On this rock (petra) I will build my church.” On what and whom is the church built? Is it Peter’s confession? Is it his teachings? Is it Christ Himself? Yes, to all three. Are you built on Jesus Christ, too?
ON CHRIST, THE SOLID ROCK, I STAND/ ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND.
