Key Verse

“And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock” (Matthew 7:25).

Text — Matthew 7:24-29


A foundation is the basis on which something is grounded. In building a house, the primary thing to look out for is the foundation. Also Gordon B. Hinckley said, “You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation; you must have a solid foundation if you’re going to have a strong superstructure.” God’s word is the firm foundation for an excelling life. Our character, values and beliefs must stem from the word of God. The only thing that will make for survival, both now and in eternity, is holding on to the word of God. Jesus is the word personified, He is the sure foundation “…For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ”  (1Corinthian 3:11).

What kind of foundation are you building your life on? What are the things that inform your decisions – superstars from the world of sports, music or social media? Turn around today, for all these foundations are sinking grounds. To build your foundation on Christ, you must, first be born again. Then, study and live by the word of God.


God’s word is a firm foundation


 Build your life on Christ, the firm foundation.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to accept you as my firm foundation today.
