Show Notes

So often people think the important thing is to have the right ideas about Jesus. Jesus flips the script on this sort of thinking when he closes his Sermon on the Mount with the parable of the wise and foolish builders. Jesus says, “Anyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” The central question of this parable is this; what kind of foundation are we building our lives on? Is it shifting sand? Is it the rock of Jesus’ teaching? The answer to this question determines if our house stands when the storm comes. One thing is sure, Jesus’ own brother challenges those who thought they could have the right beliefs without the right actions when he writes, “faith without works is dead”.
