Solid foundation

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not:  for it was founded upon a rock.  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.  — Matthew 7:24-27

What type of foundation are you building your spiritual house on?   Is it on a rock or is it on sand?   When we hear the Word of God and do not apply it to our lives, we are like the foolish man because our foundation is sand.  We can attend church hear the Word, worship God in song and praise, and walk out the door each Sunday or Bible study night agreeing that was a great Word we heard.  But if we do not apply the Word of God to our lives, what we did was in vain.  We must apply the Word to our lives and live it daily.  “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”   James 1:22 

Be like the wise man who founded his house upon the rock so when the rains, and the floods, and the winds begin to beat  upon our house, testings and trials, we are able to stand against it because we have built our house upon a solid foundation.

On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is seeking sand.
