Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

It stands because it is well built!

Luke 6:46-49 NLT
“So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground, without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.”

Reflection . . .

Here we have a contrast of . . .

Listening to and following Jesus

. . . deep and solid foundaion, well built, will stand firm through any storm!

Listening to but not following Jesus

. . . no foundation at all, will fall into ruins!

Those who call on the Lord are to come to him, listen to his teaching and follow it!
