Lead me to the rock

“From the end of the earth I call to you
 when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Psalm 61:2

Life can be overwhelming. This isn’t some new revelation. Since the fall of man in the garden, generation upon generations have experienced the pressure and pains of life. Whether it’s the bills that keep piling up, the marriage that’s falling apart, the job that never gets easier, uncertainty or anxiety or just the stress of everyday life—we often find ourselves in an overwhelmed state.

David, who penned the verse above, knew this far too well. Imagine spending 10 to 15 years of your life running from a king who hates you and has made it his mission in life to kill you. Can you see how this might be overwhelming?

We can take great comfort just as David did, in knowing that God is always accessible from any location. We don’t serve a deistic God who leaves us to our own devices—we serve a God who loves us and desires an intimate relationship with us.

Instead of trying to figure things out on his own, David cries out to God and asks him to do what only he can do. Take me to a place of peace that I could never reach except by your good and loving grace.

For us, this Rock is Jesus Christ. Even in the most overwhelming circumstances, take refuge in knowing that we can cry out to Jesus, and he will not only hear the cry of his children but answer with love and grace.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.
