Jesus Is The Foundation.

 “Jesus said, ‘He…who comes to Me and hears My words and puts them into practice…is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock.'” – Luke 6:47-48

Jesus is the “Rock on which I stand, as the old hymn says, and we cannot make our own life without Him. “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11) “The heart of man plans  his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)

We can be confident in knowing that our faith is built on Him. “Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: ‘The Lord knows those who are His,’ and, ‘Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.'” (2 Timothy 2:19) As followers of the Lord, we must live righteously, and flee from evil, since our foundation is a holy, perfect God. “In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” (1 Timothy 6:19)

“Together, we are His house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus Himself.” (Ephesians 2:20)
