Laying Our Foundation On The Rock
“Obedience is better than sacrifice”(1 Samuel 15:22)- this is the lesson which Samuel wanted King Saul to know.
The God of the whole universe is very practical in all His approach, a vain chant of His name or meaningless calling onto His name will not avail anything, but the obedience to His Word pleases Him.
“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” Luke 6:46 NKJV
Jesus discourages vain chanting and encourages Obedience.
He explains this truth by a simple illustration in the verses following…
“Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.””
Luke 6:47-49 NKJ
We daily build our house, however whether it is on the solid foundation of Christ is what we have to see. Every day when we please Him by our obedience, we are building our life upon Him and as He grips us strongly and affirms out stand, we can face any strong or vehement storm and we will still be standing on since our foundation is on the Rock Of Ages-our blessed Lord Jesus Christ.
Every vain deed disassociated with Obedience will also be building our life, however this time not on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ, but on the vanity of our shallow faith and this little strength will surely fail us when we face the mighty tempests of life.
Thus every day, may our hearts seek and endeavor Obedience and let us build ourselves strong upon our Lord and then we shall overcome every obstacle that comes our way for our trust in on Him Who keeps us always.
