Looking at house plans is different than buying house plans. And buying house plans is different than building a house.
The 3 most important thing about buying or building a house, Location, location, location.
The last part of Matthew 7 is about location. Where will we build our future? What will our foundation be?
“24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.”
Where or on what or on whom will we build the foundation of our life? Foundations are important. They are …… foundational.
“My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus blood and righteousness, I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus name.
On Christ the solid rock I stand: all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.”
I built on Jesus.
Won’t you be my neighbor?
