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 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 is the foundation of your life? Those who reject God and believe they are going to live a “happy go lucky” life are in for a rude awakening. People who don’t build their life on the rock, Jesus Christ, wonder why their lives or marriages fall apart during any storms of life. It’s inevitable, your life or marriage will crumble without God as your foundation.
Jesus tells us its like the wise man who built his house on the rock, when the storms came the house never fell. However the foolish man who built his house on the sand, once the storms come in life, their house crumbles. Why? Because their house was not built on a solid foundation. We need to understand building a life without Christ, is a disaster waiting to come, not just in the present world but in eternity also
Atheists try to define morality without God, they say people can just make up their own morality. But when confronted about Hilter , their logic crumbles. God’s moral Law, the Ten Commandments, are the moral foundation for humanity. Without God there would be no standard for morality, because we know good and evil exists, we know God exists. What’s my point? Christ is the Rock of our lives, without building your life on God everything in your life will crumble including your marriage. With no standard of morality, why expect people to be moral?
And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Matthew 7:28-29
The disciples understood and realized that Jesus is God in the flesh (John 1:14) they were astonished with his teachings and his authority. Salvation can be found in Christ alone (John 14:6) this is why you need to build your life upon Jesus. When the storms of life come crashing on your life or your marriage, will you be able to withstand it? Without the foundation of Christ, where does your moral standards come from? Without Jesus there is no hope for your life or future
Build your life on the rock, Jesus Christ, put your faith and trust in The Lord. Don’t risk your marriage or salvation without Christ! Build upon the rock and the gates of Hell with no be able to stand, Amen!
