Have you ever seen someone build a house before? The most crucial thing you do is to make sure you have a firm foundation. As Christians, we are called to build our lives upon the Word of God. In fact, if we build our lives on the Word of God, we will be able to withstand the storms of this life (Matthew 7:24-29). However, the key to building our lives on the Word of God is found in verse 24. Jesus said, “Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” The key is to put the Word of God into practice! That means don’t just hear the Word but “DO” the Word (James 1:22).
- Do I read God’s Word everyday?
- Do I apply what I read?
- Why do I struggle to apply God’s Word? Am I making excuses?
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalm 139:23-24)
