VIDEO Solid Ground

“A Psalm of David” is a wall art print done with a quote from Psalm 23: 1-6 as an overlay on an art print I have done using a color photograph of a rock ledge on a mountain. As a Christian artist, I seek to make sure that the biblical quote I am using is a good marriage with the art print I put it on. In this particular case, I was working with this Bible verse trying to find a suitable print to put it on. When I came across this photograph, I knew it was a fit. Finalizing the font and positioning the verse on this print was a tedious process of trial and error. I am pleased with the final look, as the font I chose looked best with the picture of the ledge in the foreground and the mountain valley below in the background. The shot was taken hiking up to Rattlesnake Ledge just above North Bend, Washington in the Cascades Mountain Range.

Therefore whoever hears these saying of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24

Istanbul is one of the most beautiful cities on earth—the link between Europe and Asia—but it’s also one of the most vulnerable spots for a major earthquake. It sits directly on top of an active fault line, and thousands of buildings in the city are perilously unsafe because of this.

Millions of people are building their lives on unstable ground in a spiritual and moral sense. Only the Gospel provides a worldview that will sustain us when our world shakes. Jesus made this point visually in His story of the two men in Matthew 7. Both men listened to His teachings. One man followed through with faith and obedience, and he built his life on solid ground. The other listened, then went his way without trusting or obeying what Jesus said. The ground beneath him collapsed.

The Gospel brings steadfastness to those who trust it. Those who build on Jesus are on stable ground. As the hymnist said, “When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay.”

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand. Edward Mote
