Building on Sand
Mat 7:24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Mat 7:25And 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.
Mat 7:26And 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:
Mat 7:27And 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.
A Christian who hears and practices the teachings of the Lord Jesus is
compared to a man building a house on a rock. A Christian who is a doer of
God's word, is a Christian that is not moved by every thing that comes
along whether it be adversity or the latest fad.
Please notice the following:
Rom 12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Many times a person will come to Christ and then fall away because they
base their experience with God on their feelings etc. Feelings come and
go, are up and down but God's word is unshakable and unmovable. What does
God's word say about me, a Christian? What does his word say about how to
raise my family. What does his word say about what is sin and what is not?
What we believe and practice will dictate how we live our lives
Eph 4:18Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
The world is blind and in spiritual darkness, as Christians we cannot allow it to be our guide in the affairs of live.
Please notice the word of Lord Jesus:
Mat 4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
It is amazing how many Christians have built their experience with God on the sand of Satan's lies, which he promotes through the media masses of this lost world. His propaganda campaign is proclaimed through the universities, news media, TV, books, even the cartoon network.
A few examples of
Man evolved from an ape, approval of homosexuality, sex before marriage is ok as long as you use protection etc. It is apparent that many have rejected God's word as a source of truth and have adopted the view of the world, which is based on the deceit of Satan.
What does God's word say about marriage, raising children, working, love, forgiving, witchcraft, Government, where we came from, sexuality, salvation, God, etc.
1Ti 4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
1Ti 4:2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Let the Christian examine his or her life, are you building on sand or on a rock?
