Encouraging others in Christ

The rain descended, the roof got rusty, now let’s check the foundation…

Although the roof is half blown off, notice on the left that the light is piercing through and forming an image of the CROSS 

Isn’t it an exciting time when building a new house? We can hardly wait to see the laying of the foundation.
The word foundation is described as the lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level. Also, An underlying basis or principle for something.
Some days it can be challenging to keep ourselves grounded, and remembering that Christ is our firm foundation.

MATTHEW 7:24-27
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

To build upon a rock” means to be a hearing, responding disciple, not a phony, superficial one. Practicing obedience becomes the solid foundation to weather the storms of life.
Like a house of cards, the fool’s life crumbles. Most people do not deliberately seek to build a false or inferior foundation; instead, they just don’t think about life’s purpose.
Part of our responsibility as believers is to help others stop and think about where their lives are headed and to point out the consequences of ignoring Christ’s Message.

FRUITFUL OBSERVATION: We all know far to well that we are going to face a many of storms in this lifetime. We need the security and protection that Christ offers us daily, as well as the confidence of our eternal life. No one likes to think of death, but it is a part of this life.

Let’s build our solid foundation with hope in Christ through our faith today and every day!

    • So true Ginger! We may think we know what’s best some days but I assure you that if ‘Something’ is going right it’s due to Him and His plan for us๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚!
      One thing is for sure, we have to finally come to a place of total surrender, and that can involve a many of storm warnings, but once we realize it, then we have more Son-SHINE filled days๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜Š
