Your Foundation Determines Your Destination
By: The John Ankerberg Show
On Sunday, I preached from Matthew 7:21-27 (ESV):
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
As we approach the Christmas season and we can look back upon 2013 with discernment, it’s wise to consider the foundation for your life. Is your foundation built upon solid rock (Jesus) or is it built upon sinking sand (yourself)? Watch and hear what Jesus has to say about this.
