Live on the Rock

main-qimg-57c61d336d880b28a884e1cee6869503Jesus closes His Sermon on the Mount with a last warning. He has already finished teaching about God’s rule in His sermon. He calls on His hearers to choose whether to obey His words or disobey them.

Jesus the carpenter uses a building parable to drive home His point. It is a parable of the wise house builder and the foolish house builder. He who obeys Jesus is like the wise builder who builds his house on the rock. He who ignores Jesus is like the foolish builder who builds his house on the sand.

The main point of Jesus is the prime importance of obeying His words. Jesus is not talking about any other house. He is talking about the house of your life. Specifically, Jesus is talking about the foundation of the house of your life.

What kind of foundation are you building your life today? Are you building your life on the rock of obedience to Jesus’ words? Or are you building your life on the sand of disobedience?

Jesus teaches us two things about obeying and ignoring His words.
