LISTEN NOW! John, Greg, and Pat discuss the importance on building on the right foundation which is the implemented and practiced Word of God. They continue to share that it matters very little how many sermons we hear and if we read the Bible cover to cover if we don’t implement and practice the word of God in our daily lives. Matthew 7:24-27“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.” It’s the one who hears the word of God and puts it into practice is the one who is building on a solid foundation. They continue to discuss how many are continuing to build yet they have no foundation. Jesus told us that we will face trials and tribulations of many kinds and when the storms do come what has been built on the wrong foundation will truly come down and crash. They encourage us to embrace an abiding relationship with God and to begin to implement and practice His word in our lives. The things of God are not difficult. Mark Twain said that it’s not the things he doesn’t understand in the Bible that give him the toughest problem it’s the things he does understand. We must not be left to our understanding alone but must rely truly on the Word of God that we have embraced and practiced in our life that we may become more like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
