What Does It Look Like to Have Christ as Our Rock?

It is with this confidence that we can embrace the exhortations in Scripture to press on, to grow in knowledge and maturity, to keep up with the Spirit rather than grieve him, and to offer our bodies to righteousness and put to death the deeds of our sinful nature.  Instead of mounting up to heaven in self-righteousness ambition, we reach out to those who are right under our nose each day who need something that we have to offer.  Christ is our rock.  And when we fall off, we get back on that rock, secure in the identity that he has given us, and we keep striving to distribute his loving gifts to others.
