#978 – Firm Foundation

Good morning people who live by the Word of God

Luke 6:46-49 Why do you call Me, “Lord, Lord,” and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to Me and hears My words and puts them into practice. He is 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.

Jesus is Lord of our lives when we do what He says, not just when we say Jesus is Lord. There’s a difference between Lord and Saviour. We can receive Jesus as Saviour simply by an act of faith and commitment to Christ. We receive Jesus as Lord; that is Supreme in authority, the Controller of our lives, when we do what He says.

Here’s an important question for all of us today: How much of what we know do we do? The answer to this is the evidence of Jesus’ Lordship in our lives.

What type of foundation is your life built on? Jesus is the rock, the firm foundation, the only foundation that can stand through all types of weather. But in context with this verse, it’s our obedience to Jesus, and not just our acceptance of Him that is our firm foundation – the foundation which supports the house of our lives.

What type of building is your life? The foundation must be laid well and the house must be built well.

No flood, fire or earthquake can destroy a life that is built on the foundation of doing what Jesus has said. Now that’s what I desire for my life
