Rock Solid

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27

I remember singing a song in Sunday school class about this. Perhaps you’re too young to remember, but it went like this: “The wise man built his house upon the rock. The wise man built his house upon the rock. The wise man built his house upon the rock and the rains came tumbling down. The rains came down and the floods came up. The rains came down and the floods came up. The rains came down and the floods came up and the house on the rock stood firm.” The second part was about building on the sand and when the rains came down and the floods came up, the house on the sand fell flat. The things that come to mind…

But it’s really more than that, isn’t it? It’s about doing what He said. That’s really what Jesus was talking about, wasn’t it? Those that hear and do will be likened to a wise man who built his house on the rock. Why? Because if you live your life on His Word, even when the rain comes and the winds beat against your house, trying to shake you and make you quit, you will remain standing because you’re standing on the Word that never fails.

Something to think about today….
