Luke 6:47-49 says “Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.“
Jesus equates the person that hears his words and does them to a well-constructed home on a firm foundation.
That person dug deep and laid the foundation of the home on a solid rock. The imagery is rich and clear: our life is the building and the foundation is Jesus Christ.
Will this kind of home be standing although it is blasted with wind and waves?
Because it is well built.
Here are a few questions for you: Who is your foundation? How deep did you dig? What is the condition of your spiritual home?
I encourage you to dig deep into Christ. He is our solid rock…all other ground is sinking sand.
