“Whoever comes to me, hears my words and acts on them will be like a house built upon a rock…” Luke 6:47, 48
Whoa!….what’s this??? Okay…coo-ol. Someone built a house not only on a rock, but out of rock…in the Fafe mountains in Portugal. In the worst of storms, bets are that this place would stand…well…solid as a rock. Our spiritual lives aren’t about ‘religion’ and looking good on the outside or talking nice. God wants to build genuine strength within us to help us stand firm through every storm. Get into His Word.
“I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven…” Matthew 16:19
This isn’t about keys to any building called a ‘church’. God’s got something far more amazing and profound in mind. He calls His church ‘living stones’. His Kingdom is not simply written about in blogs or books or preached in pleasant or lofty sermons. His Kingdom is being written in the lives of real people. It is being written right now…on human hearts.
“My Word is a lamp to your feet…a light on your pathways…” Psalm 119.105
God’s Word promises that He knew us before we were born. Anyone who knows you that closely, also knows and cares intimately about every detail of your life even if you don’t know or believe in Him. He cares. He’s there. His light always breaks through.
