Resting On The Rock



By Ramone - January 25, 2008

Believe on Jesus
Rest upon the Rock
His strength overcomes weakness
In Him put all your stock
Rest your whole life on Him
He's the Rock, not you
Know peace complete, secure
His faithfulness is true

This is the last picture (of three) that came one day when I was meditating on the book of James. I remembered that older English expression of believing in Jesus which says, "Believe on Jesus." I thought of it in the context of James -- about believing God enough to actually trust in God with your whole life, including your actions. It made sense! Believe "on" Jesus -- cast your whole life on Him! This was the last of three pictures that quickly came and illustrated it, helping me understand visually what it means to believe "on" Jesus!

This picture, actually, was something I first doodled in a sketch book on "Sabbath-rest" notes probably back in 2002 sometime. It summed up what "Sabbath-rest" felt like (Sabbath-rest is the wonderful rest and peace that comes to us in Jesus because of His finished work for us). It's like resting on a big rock in the ocean, safe from all the waves. Bathing in the sun. Feeling it's solid power and security. Jesus is our Rock! Rest on Him.

This picture is actually part 2 of 3 pictures that came together in a series. To see all three pictures and read the complete poem (that's only the third part of it above), click this link: 'Believe On Jesus' Series

    Great to hear from a brother interested to reach the Japanese. I live in Yokosuka Japan and go street witnessing weekly and have many interesting experiences. Resting in Jesus is wonderful. Please email me at bibletruths@live.com as we want to make a tract in Japanese soon. Maybe we can pray for each other. Interesting to hear you coming out of the Jehovah Witnesses - the same as my friend David (who has a Japanese wife and is learning Japanese).

    Love in Christ Jesus / Bill
