Built On The Rock
By Pastor John

Matthew 7:21-29
21"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!' 24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 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. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash." 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

When we hear the words of Jesus we should want to put them into practice. If we hear a promise, we should want to claim it and stand on it.  If we hear a warning, we should want to heed it.  If we hear a command, we should want to obey it. 

Why?
1. Because of Faith - I believe in Jesus.  I believe whatever He says. I know He will not, cannot lie to me.  I believe whatever He says, therefore I put it into practice. I have faith that what He said to me is for my good.

24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 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. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."

Hebrews 11:7
7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.
What if Noah had not obeyed?

Hebrews 11:8
8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

2. Because of Love
John 14:15
"If you love me, you will obey what I command.

Be Wise. Listen to the words of the Lord. Put all of them into practice.  Believe them, stand on them, heed them, obey them.   Build on the Rock.
