Rock Solid

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock."
—Matthew 7:24-25

Created for a teaching series called "Rock Solid", with this image I really wanted to give a sense of movement and force to the waves. Their impact is powerful, yet it simply serves to demonstrate the sturdiness of the rock. The scene was also inspired by a day spent at the cliffs in Palos Verdes, though thankfully the waves weren't quite so rough!

Also check out this alternate version—"Upon the Rock" which is available as a high quality art print at

This parable image as well as several other sermon illustration images are available for licensing by churches, ministries, and Christian publishers.  Contact me if you'd like more info.
