Jesus – The Sure Foundation

In previous teachings we had been looking at surviving storms as it relates to living the word and doing what the word says.  We said by doing the word, we are like someone that dug deep and laid a foundation on rock, unlike the shallow builder on earth.  In this teaching, we will look at Christ as the sure foundation.  Christ is laid as foundation but not on anything…but on rock.  The rock of repentance, restitution  and  consecration provided by His grace.

Our text is from Luke 6[47]  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like: [48]  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. [49]  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

I Cor. 3[9]  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. [10]  According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. [11]  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Rev.21 [2]  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Our building is in partnership with God and we must take care to build knowing we are the junior partner in the partnership for our God is an awesome builder having built a magnificent city prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  The buildings of God are for God and founded on Christ.  Read more

Let  us continue to look at Christ as our sure foundation, but this time we see a different perspective of surviving in Him.  When we hide in something…it is what we hide in that is seen… we cannot hope to have any righteousness of our own no matter what we do…but the righteousness of Christ is the garment we put on…this is like someone who goes to a wardrobe…we do not pray, or plead that a dress comes on us….No, we make a clear selection out of possibilities and we take off what we may have had on before (such as pride, self-righteousness)…and then put on Christ.  These are deliberate actions, selections and choices…we can say in Him we live, in Him we move, in Him we have our being…When we hide in Him..we are taking a deliberate conscious action.

Luke 6[47]  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like: [48]  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. [49]  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

Proverbs 10 [24]  The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. [25]  As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more : but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.

But this time as we are hid in Christ …we have His righteousness.  The unseen part of our life (hidden in Christ) is all-in-all and this drives the seen – which must glorify Christ.  When we are righteous we are an eternal foundation. Read more

God bless you.
