“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” Luke 6:46-49
Something I heard once that has stuck with me and I say a lot now is that “A disciple is one that hears from the Lord and does what he says.” Jesus is speaking here about that. He gives a parable about one who builds his house upon the rock. He is the one who hears from God and does what He says. The one who hears and doesn’t do is the man who’s house is not built upon a strong foundation. The words that God speaks is that foundation to live our lives on. And a great way He speaks to us is through His Word, the Bible. As we read and meditate on His Word, we learn and grow and can then share what we learn with others.
This week, continue to build on the foundation of the rock. Read the Bible, pray and share what God is teaching you with others.
