Luke 6: 47-48 ” I will show you what he is like who comes to Me and hears My Words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.”

How can I apply what Jesus was teaching the crowd in these verses?  The first thing comes from James 1:22, “Don’t merely listen to the Word…do what it says.”  For I know I can be in my Bible daily, but if I don’t take what I’ve learned and make it part of my life, what have I gained?  Secondly, I know my journey as a Christian isn’t going to be all goodness and light…sometimes it will involve digging down deep to the depths of my soul and going into areas of my life that are painful in order to  build on God’s solid foundation.  Finally, when the storms of life hit,  I will with God’s help  stand firm and not be shaken by the outside world…all the while being reminded of Psalm 62:2, “He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
