The Rock House

21 Feb

The Rock House…

The Lord gives a parable of the man who builds his house on the rock, and the other one who builds it on sand. The one who builds on sand has the easier time at first. It’s easier to move the sand around. And that’s the point, it’s moveable.

It represents the one who builds his or her life on what’s moveable, what’s changing – everything but the things of God. It’s building your life on your popularity, what people think of you, your reputation, your intelligence, job, house, situation – even good things like marriage and family which are gifts from God.

These aren’t the foundation ground. The foundation ground is God. Are you building your life on moveable things, temporary things? It’s harder to build on rock, because rock is the immovable unchanging word of God – but it lasts.

The wise man builds everything on the rock. Because when you do that, when you build your life on the rock, your joy, well-being, plans, marriage, house, ministry, all these things become immovable. All these things will become solid as a rock.

As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it because it was well built. But, the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed, and its destruction was complete. Luke 6:47-49

Pause and ask yourself what you’re truly building your life and your actions upon – the sand or the rock. If change is needed, start today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
