In Luke 6:47-49, Jesus Christ described whoever hears his sayings and does them as someone who built his house on a solid foundation of rock whereas, he described whoever does nothing about them as someone who built his house on mere sand. While the former house withstood harsh onslaught on it, the latter fell like a pack of cards because it had no foundation. This account brought to fore the importance of solid foundation.
Now, before we go any further with this write-up, I will like us to look around the words ‘foundation and solid foundation’ first. By definition, a foundation is a natural or prepared ground on which structures rest and it is said to be solid if it can withstand varying degree of attacks on it. In Civil Engineering, solid foundations are products of painstaking activities and they usually outlive the structures built on them.
Solid foundations are important in all facets of life. For example, a solid foundation of adequate resources is important in business while prolonged, targeted and relevant exercises is the solid foundation needed in sports and academic excellence depends largely on a solid foundation arising from long hours of organized reading etc.
Also in Christendom, we need a solid foundation (the most solid of all foundations) to thrive on. And Apostle Paul confirmed this foundation to be Jesus Christ. In 1 Corinthians 3:11 He said: ‘’For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ’’. Friend, this foundation is strong enough to carry all your circumstances, your family, business, education, health, salvation, and eternal life etc (Luke 1:37) and the good news is that it is all yours immediately you surrender your life to Jesus Christ; that is, immediately you become born again (John 6:37). So, make the move right now!
Perhaps you surrendered your life to Him in the past but you are not too sure of your status now; if that is the case with you then, why don’t you consider rededicating your life to Him today? Please note that He is willing to accept and forgive you all your sins (Isaiah 1:18). But if you are all right with Him; excellent! Certainly, He will see you through the rest of your life however, you must be vigilant (1 Corinthians 10:12).
Finally, do not forget that it is your responsibility to keep your association with Jesus Christ alive. This you can do among other ways by: 1. Keeping away from evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22). 2. Praying regularly (1 Thessalonians 5:17). The Holy Spirit can help you out here (Romans 8:26). 3. Reading your bible faithfully (Joshua 1:8). 4. Winning souls for Him (Proverbs 11:30). If you keep to this and similar guidelines then, you will prosper on earth ad-infinitum and attain heaven at the end of the day. May the good Lord help you all the way through in Jesus name. Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
