What Are You Building On?

Matthew 7:26-27
"Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
27"The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell--and great was its fall."
I live in Wilmington North Carolina. Over the last 20 years I have seen many houses just like this one, and worse, after the storms we have here along the coast. These houses are built on the sand and the foundation is not strong enough to withstand the storms. The amazing thing is before the storm this house was beautiful and worth a great deal of money however, at this point it's not worth much at all. Jesus warns us against building our lives on shaky foundations. People build their lives on possessions, popularity, and power but when the storms of life come they often strip away those things and peoples lives fall apart just like this house. We must build our lives on Christ and when all the material things are taken away we find ourselves still standing strong in the power of His strength. You will never know Christ is all you need until Christ is all you have. Build your life on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ because in Wilmington we know it's not IF another storm is coming it is just a matter of WHEN.
