And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. Luke 6:46-48
Many people call Jesus their Lord, however many people don’t follow Christ commandments. This is what Jesus was saying, “Why do they call me Lord, and not do the things I say”? We see this alot today in modern day Christianity, many people make up a Jesus of their own liking. Remember the word “Lord” in the Bible means Master. If you a declaring Jesus is your Lord, then He is your Master and you are his slave, period
Jesus compared those who actually do listen to him, like those who build their house upon The Rock. When the storm comes, they will not be shaken, because their foundation is firmly built upon The Rock. This is related to your personal life, when the storm of life come upon you, you won’t be shaken because Jesus Christ is the foundation of your life. Regardless of what happens to you, the Great Shepherd will lead you through the valley of death, his rod and staff will comfort you
But notice Jesus said, this is only for the people who actually listen to him. These are the people, Christians, who put their complete faith in Jesus Christ. Not the false converts who put their faith in their religion or politics.
But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. Luke 6:49
Anyone who doesn’t have true faith in Jesus Christ, have no foundation in their lives. And when the real storms of life come crashing in, they will collapse. Why? Because they have no foundation, they have no faith in anything but corrupt and perishable things. You must have complete faith in Christ, and listen to his commandments! If Jesus is your Lord , then He is your Master, period
The storms of life are heavy today, we are in the last days. If you haven’t already , build your foundation upon the Rock, Jesus Christ. Otherwise you will be destroyed by this world, you have no hope without Christ! Jesus is my Rock and the gates of Hell will not prevail against him Amen!
