Sermons about Sand
Matt kicks off a new series called "Riddle Me This" where he will be giving us tools to understand the teachings and parables of Jesus.
Jesus is finishing up his sermon to his disicples with a probing question about teachers. How can you tell a good teacher? Jesus answers—their fruit and your foundation.
Pastor Michael concludes this series as he teaches it's not just those who hear the Word of God that makes them stand on solid rock, it's those who hear and obey.
But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. ~Matthew 7:26
We've all been in conversations when we realize half way into a paragraph that we don't know what the other person is talking about, because our mind has drifted... OR ... we wonder if the person we're talking to is actually listening, because there is a "far-oï¬€" look in their eye and they don't seem to be tracking with us! Jesus wraps up this long message with a very basic challenge: It is not the "hearer only" who will beneï¬t from these principles, but the one who actually "builds upon" these words! He has oï¬€ered a sure foundation that will carry us through the storms of life â€’ the only question is whether or not we will build on it? "On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand; all other ground it sinking sand." Key Passage: Matthew 7:24-29
