Jesus Is Our Firm Foundation

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug deep down and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
Luke 6:46-49 (NLT)

Perhaps this story of the wise man building his house upon the rock reminds you of Sunday school. Maybe a song with hand motions is surfacing in your memory. Yeah, I’m humming.

Sometimes the familiar stories are difficult to learn from because we already know the lesson. Jesus paints a memorable picture by showing us what they are like. The song says they are wise. But who are they? So I ask you to read today’s story again.

They are the wise who come to Jesus, hear his words and put them into practice. (tweet this)

They don’t stay on the surface of scripture. They work hard to understand deeply how to apply Jesus’ words in life. They find solid rock in God’s unshakable truth.

Could they be us? Yes!

Let’s be the wise! Let’s seek to understand Jesus’ words and put them into practice. Let’s dig for the truth we can stand on when the torrents of life strike.

Where do you find truth?
What are the consequences of ignoring Jesus’ words?

    Well said Ms. Cathy. To live as a true Christian is to allow Christ to live in you. If He’s in you, and He is the word, then the word is in you. If it isn’t coming out, then I have to wonder what’s inside. We must live out our faith. Our bodies are His temple, not His storehouse. So enjoyed this gentle reminder ti love our our faith ma’am. God’s blessings on this amazing job.

      I love that ‘our bodies are temples not storehouses’. Information is not the goal. Practice is. Pouring out to others. Thanks for your comment.
