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 couldn’t shake it, because it was well built.”

We can hear the Word of God preached for years, but never transition it from head knowledge to heart knowledge. We can acknowledge it as infallible and divine, but until we actually put it into practice in our life, it’s all just nice words. For God’s Words to make a profound difference we need to do what James 1:2 says, “Don’t merely listen to the Word…do what it says.” We can’t just acknowledge it, we need to receive it as the truth, embrace it as real, and obey it by conforming our actions. And when we do this, we are building our life not on the unstable, fickle, and erratic world view, but on the foundational bedrock of Jesus Christ. So when the storms of life come, (and we all know they will) we can stand strong against them because of Him.
