Preparing For Life’s Bad Weather Days
Matthew 7:24-29 Conquering Stress, Anxiety And Fear: Parables Of Jesus (Series)
Do you make decisions based on your faith or your needs?
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. 25 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. 26 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. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
The two builders represent two people. They use the same material, plans, and the world can’t tell the difference. The difference in found out during the storm.
1 Corinthians 3:11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
The true Christian is founded on the Rock, Christ Jesus. False believers always fall away in the time of testing. Do you trust or doubt God during difficult times? What is your faith built on?
Matthew 7:28-29 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Jesus is Lord.
