PostSubject: The House Built On The Rock   Wed Nov 13, 2013 10:41 am

It did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Matthew 7:25

The house founded on the rock represents the life of spiritual obedience. It's the life that takes a scriptural view of itself and the world, as described in Christ's Beatitudes in The Sermon on the Mount. http://www.lds.org/bible-videos/videos/sermon-on-the-mount-the-beatitudes?lang=eng It's the sort of life that's more concerned about internal righteousness than external form. It's a life of genuineness rather than hypocrisy and of God's righteousness rather than self-righteousness.

The house based on the rock depicts the life that empties itself of pride and human good works and is humble and repentant because of it's own sin. Such a life strives with the help of the Holy Spirit to enter the narrow gate of salvation and be faithful to the narrow way of Christ and His Word. The life built on the rock trusts in God's will and hopes in His Word above all else. Where does your hope rest and your trust lie?

Insight: We need to be humble and willing to learn from God's Word, the Holy Bible. “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14. Jesus Christ is this narrow gate. Trust in Him today.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Please help me to set aside my own thoughts and be willing to learn from Your Word. I want my life to be built on the rock. I know this Rock is Jesus Christ. And it's in Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
