“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 down deep 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 New International Version
It’s easy to become distracted by everything we have to do. And it’s easy to veer off the path God has for us. We keep going and going until one day we realize we’ve neglected our relationship with Jesus and somehow we’ve built our spiritual house on sand. We didn’t mean for it to happen, it just did.But if you find that you have built your house on sinking sand, don’t be discouraged. We’ve all been there. And we’ve all had to rebuild our house from time to time, (myself included).So how can we rebuild our home on the rock instead of sand? Jesus said that those who hear His words and do them will be like the wise man that built his house on the rock. That means if we put our faith in Jesus, pray, read the Bible and then actually follow through and do what He says, we will be founded on the rock. To read the complete article, please go here.
Our Father, Thank you for Jesus, on whose words we can build the firm foundation of our lives. Help us to always abide in you – to dwell daily in your presence by your word and in prayer, that we may never take our eyes off Jesus. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. May we always delight in you and glorify your name.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
