In the article Built A Solid Foundation, I will explain to you both the Why & How to build a solid spiritual foundation with lasting materials.
May you clearly hear the voice of the Holy Spirit ministering to you while reading through these truths from God’s Word.
Why we need to build a solid spiritual foundation
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it fell. And great was its fall.”Matthew 7:24-27
I always loved this Scripture, it is almost as if you can see the house, the rock, the storm, the winds, and the fall.
The beauty of this parable is not only two scenarios, but Jesus is exactly telling us how to build our house on Him, Jesus Christ the Rock.
Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them – Jesus taught so many precious truths, and when we not alone hear them, but study, ponder on, and also apply them to our lives…
I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock – when we accept Christ as our Savior the old pass, and we become new and the wise man who built his spiritual house on Jesus Christ our Rock.
“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”1 Corinthians 3:11
And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house – what we believe in and where we place our faith will eventually have to go through the test.
And it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock – when we are firmly grounded on Christ we will not fall and will be able to stand when the storms of life blow against our life.
But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them – this is when we hear sermons, or read the Bible, but is a forgetful hearer of the Word and, not a doer of the Word….
Will be like a foolish man – everyone who is a forgetful hearer is a foolish man, without reflecting anything he heard.
Who built his house on the sand – when we don’t take any precautions to build a solid foundation to protect our lives from storms and destruction.
And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house – when the foundation of the house is weak, nothing ill protect it if the storm comes, even if the walls and the roof is from strong materials, it will not help.
And it fell. And great was its fall. – everyone who builds their foundation on anything else than Jesus Christ will fall, whether it is our work or another person or anything else that enjoys our priority, the fall will be great. And not only that but other people can get hurt as well.
