Solid Rock

Re:Verse passage – Luke 6:46-49 (day four) 

This week’s passage is the final parable in the Sermon on the Mount.  Jesus had preached the lengthy discourse to the Jewish people.  Many of the Jews led very devoted lives.  They loved Jehovah and ordered their lives according to the Mosaic Law.  Jesus made this very clear contrast to a life obedient to God and the life that did not have a foundation built upon Him (Christ).  The interesting element to this story is that the same torrent burst against each house.  It was the house with a strong foundation (Jesus) that stood.  The other house failed.  Until the torrent came, it was not evident which house would weather the storm.

Where is your life founded?  Have you built your life upon the Solid Rock?

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the solid rock I stand

All other ground is sinking sand.

All other ground is sinking sand.
