Solid Foundations

Bible Reading: Matthew 7:24-29

Living only a few hours from the Canadian Rockies for half of my childhood, I spent many weekends camping in the mountains with my family. We would pack the family into our old suburban and drive until we reached one of many destinations.

I remember one of those times when I was about ten. For the first time I was allowed to sleep in my own tent. Within our family this signified a certain level of trust from our parents. My father had instructed me to tie it down. Being ten and wanting to get fishing, I hurriedly pitched it until it stood without hammering a single peg into the ground. When I got back from my fishing excursion I found my tent had blown into the trees; without the foundation of the ground the tent stood no chance against the wind.

Our reading today tells us that we must not only learn what Jesus taught, but also live what he taught. Faith alone is not enough. We must work always towards becoming more like Jesus in all that we say and do. When we strive daily to become more like Christ, we build a solid foundation for our faith.

24 Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock

Prayer: Dear Lord, please help me work towards making my life a reflection of the life Jesus lived, Amen.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is a beautiful encouraging devotion.

Really good thoughts. :D You know, it's interesting how God reinforces things sometimes, because the Sunday School lesson my cousin brought this morning was on how Christ is our foundation and everything is built on him. :D Thanks for sharing this.
