"Water from the Rock" - Exodus 17:1-7 (Devon Kauflin)
Verse: Exodus 17:1–17:7
For he is our God,
And we are the people of his pasture,
And the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice,
Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah,
As on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
When your fathers put me to the test
And put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.
- Psalm 95:7-9
“Sin will not only be striving, acting, rebelling, troubling, disquieting, but if let alone, if not continually mortified, it will bring forth great, cursed, scandalous, soul-destroying sins . . . Sin aims always at the utmost; every time it rises up to tempt or entice, might it have its own course, it would go out to the utmost sin in that kind. Every unclean thought or glace would be adultery if it could; every covetous desire would be oppression, every thought of unbelief would be atheism, might it grow to its head. . . . It is like the grave that is never satisfied.”
- John Owen
For I do not want you to be unaware brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all at the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.
- 1 Corinthians 10:1-4
“This river of God, which is full of water, can never run dry, nor be exhausted, however abundantly we drink of its refreshing streams.”
- William McEwen
