Today’s Bible reading from the Five Day Bible Reading Plan: Leviticus 26-27; Psalm 112; Hebrews 10
I live near Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. Beginning construction in 1936, this outdoor amphitheatre is a marvel–as is the 736-acre surrounding park. As the website noted, this stands as a “transitional zone” where the Great Plains and the Rockies meet. If you’ve never visited, you have missed how impressive the amphitheature is, with a view that goes for miles and miles and lined by montrous… red rocks–making for amazing acoustics and a beautiful setting.
In Psalm 112, we read in verses 6-8:
For the righteous will never be moved;Psalm 112:6-8 (ESV)
he will be remembered forever.
He is not afraid of bad news;
his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
Carving out a venue out of rock makes the observer believe that this is a steady, immovable setting to not just watch a concert but to do anything.
Christ is our righteousness (Romans 3:21-26; 1 Corinthians 1:29-31) and if our righteousness is in Christ, we shall never be moved. While bad news is certainly bad, it does not strike a paralyzing fear in us because we know that Christ is our rock and sits sovereignly on His throne. Because Christ is firm, we are firm. Because Christ is steady, we are steady.
Where do we find our steadiness? May it be in Christ and Christ alone.
