Matthew 7:24-27 New International Version (NIV)
The Wise and Foolish Builders
24 “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. 25 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. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Are you building for the long haul?
Premise: A spiritual life built up without eternity in focus lacks the strength and structure to last for the long haul.
Know Jesus, understand His message, and do what it says. (vs 24, James 1:22)
i. It isn’t about what you do.
ii. Jesus gives your life a solid foundation.
The storms will come. Are you ready?
i. Don’t underestimate the power of the storm
ii. Don’t underestimate the strength of your Lord
Are you building your life on Jesus?
