The Rock House

3 Jul

The Rock House…

The Empire State Building rises one hundred and three stories, nearly a quarter of a mile into the sky. It weighs around 303,000 tons. How can you build something that massive without it crashing down?

The answer is the foundation of the Empire State Building descends thirty three feet below the sidewalk. It rests on stratum granite, the very rock that’s the earth itself.

If not for this thirty-three foot foundation, all its one hundred and three stories, six thousand windows, seventy-five miles of water pipes, and 303,000 tons of steel would come crashing down.

Your entire life is like the Empire State Building. You build it upwards, with career, family, homes, goals, reputation, all sorts of things. If your life is not firmly founded on the rock it has no sure foundation and will ultimately fall apart.

Jesus said to build our house on the rock. The Rock is God – the only sure foundation. That which is built apart from the Rock will ultimately come crashing down. That which is built upon the Rock, firmly grounded on the Lord and His Word, will rise to the heavens and neither fall nor be shaken.

“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. 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. 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. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matthew 7:24-27

Schedule a building inspection today. Go over Jesus’s checklist to see if your life, your footings are rooted and grounded in Him. If not, you can always reschedule.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
