MATTHEW 7:25_and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
The only thing which saves the house from this type of beating is its foundation. Of course good construction is important, but the foundation is vital. As in the study of the branch and the vine when the vine was the source, now the foundation is the source.
In either lesson Jesus is still the Source.
This life-house stands strong because of its rock-solid foundation. Psalm 11:3 (KJV), “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous [salty-lit-up disciples] do?”
If you’re not building upon the Rock you contribute to the decline of the nation. Salty-lit-up disciples help a country stand against the evils that beat against it.
Psalm 92 (KJV) lets us see why we should be solid in the Rock, “13 Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; 15 To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”
When you stand strong against the storms of life, you shed light on God’s righteousness—you preserve His ways.
God of All, Help me show the world Your goodness. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ can use my life to show His righteousness—Oh yes!
