Build Your Life On The Solid Foundation

Residents of northern California are experiencing aftershocks after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit near Napa Valley Sunday, injuring at least 172 people and causing extensive damage, including fires sparked by burst gas lines. This was the largest tremor to rock the Bay Area since a magnitude 6.9 quake shook the area in 1989 twenty-five minutes before the start of Game 3 of the 1989 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A's at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.
Building anything on an unstable foundation is not wise. This is also true of our spiritual lives. Jesus taught His disciples this truth with an illustration: “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 7:26-27.
The shifting morals of our present world can be confusing. We may be tempted to let culture or the opinions of society be the foundation for the decisions we make. But obeying the unwavering truth of God’s Word brings stability unavailable anywhere else. “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” v.24
Build your life on the solid foundation—Jesus Christ.
