When you sit with an architect to plan for that new addition to your home you will find that there are several important structures that hold together the integrity of the building. For example; if you were to remove a pillar or a barring wall from its place you will immediately learn that you have just inherited a cost-free “man cave.”
Without realizing it, our lives can be an endless construction site where we are continually adding to our “field of dreams”. We work, we save, we sweat, and we tear up when everything comes together as planned. The one deciding factor of whether our personal paradise sustains the test of time or not; is whether we built our hopes on the fragile parcel of human ideologies or on the bedrock of God’s eternal promises.
The Bible teaches us that Christ is the cornerstone and the one who holds everything together. If you apply His instructions and build according to His plans your investment will never return to you void. Build today on the solid rock of faith in God’s Word.
24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
