Matthew 7:24-27 () “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” ESV #Bible
What an awesome description of our lives. We can build our house literally on rock, and it will stand through whatever nature throws at it.
The same is true when we hear the counsel of Jesus the Christ and belive and do what He says.
Jesus being our Rock or the Foundation of our lives proves to be strong, withstanding the storms of this life.
No matter what the world might throw at us, our foundation – Jesus is stronger, and we survive. It doesn’t mean in this life only, but even to eternity with Jesus.
For those who reject the good news of the counsel of Jesus the Christ. Who build their lives on what they desire, and even lust after. Believing it will bring satisfaction and safety, without considering their need for a solid foundation. Will in time be found toppled by the destructiveness of this life and it’s temptations.
As always Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus holds the keys to life, and true life is found no where else but in Jesus the Christ. That’s why Jesus is called our Saviour.
