"Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord' and do not what I tell you?" Why indeed. We know Christ's way is the best way. We know that it is destructive to believe one way and live another. We know that Christ has made us certain promises and that he is able to keep those promises. Why then do we not listen to His words and build our house on the Rock where the flood, and the wind, and the stream cannot shake it, because it is built on solid ground?
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
Dear Lord, starting today, we are going to build a better foundation for our life on the rock of Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
