2019-09-07 - A Firm Foundation
During recent media coverage of a major hurricane, a reporter showed a homeowner attempting to ready his house for the approaching storm. The man's house was tied down with straps. Some of these straps were so flimsy that they were attached to the homeowner's vehicle. When asked about his improvised attempts to protect his house, the man said that he was worried that the winds and floods would pull his house off of its foundations.
Jesus talked about having a strong foundation in times of trouble. He described having a strong faith as a man building a house with a strong foundation. In Luke 6:47-48 (NIV), Jesus said, "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."
How strong is your foundation? When the storms of life come, is your faith built on a firm foundation? Will you put your faith in Christ and His promises today?
