Where is Jesus?

How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?

Read Romans 9:32-33.

The most important part of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was the part about a great rock from God that destroyed the statue and grew into a mountain and filled the whole earth. The rock was a picture of Jesus Christ and the mountain a picture of God’s kingdom. Throughout the Bible, God uses a rock or stone to represent his work on the earth. Another example is when water came out from a rock in the desert for the children of Israel to drink.

Later in the New Testament, we are told that the rock in the desert represents Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4). Jesus compared a life lived for God to a house that was strong and sturdy because it was built on the rock of God’s truth (Matthew 7:24). The apostle Paul said that the rock of God’s truth is Jesus (Romans 9:33).


Family Discipleship - "Time" in the Home

We are on week 72 which starts on page 485 in the Long Story Short devotional. Take a peek below to catch a glimpse of what is in store for family discipleship this week.

  • Day 1: Daniel’s courage to speak up

  • Day 2: God gets glory by Daniel interpreting the dream

  • Day 3: Jesus is the ultimate rock who defeated sin and death

  • Day 4: God gives grace to humble but opposes the proud

  • Day 5: God’s love and anger

Pray about it! Thank Jesus for crushing our enemies — sin and death — when he died on the cross. Now we can trust the Lord and be free from the power of sin and live forever in heaven with God.
