(KJV.) ST. LUKE 6:46-18
(46) And, why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
(47) Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
(48) He is like a man which built a house, and dug 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.
BE SOLID AS A ROCK!
Brethren, as believers, numerous times, over and over again, we hear the words of our Father from preachers, pastors, ministers, missionaries etc. over the world; bravo! to preachers of the word, for their obedience to the words of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, doing their godly duties within the body of Christ, and nations of the world: for Jesus said, Go ye into the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. (Mark 16:15-16); this is the great commission to followers of Jesus Christ; let us not give up spreading his words, regardless of obstacles and hindrances from the enemy, we owe our service to Jesus Christ, let us not be weary in well-doings, in due time we will reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9).
As Christian believers, what do we do, after we receive his words into our hearts momentarily? Do we obey him, act upon his words, to assimilate wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, that we may exemplify ourselves in Jesus Christ, receive earthly and heavenly blessings forevermore? or do we listen to his words, but are not doers of his words, deceive our own selves? This is a point to ponder on!
If that should be the case, then, listen to what Jesus said, in the above text, narratively, if we accept him as Lord and Savior, listen and obey his words, do what is required; we are like men who dug up the ground deeply, laid foundations to built houses upon solid rocks, that when flood waters came, pushed upon their houses with strong and forceful waves, the houses stood strong, were not shaken, uprooted, thrown up, downcasted, drifted with flood waters, because their houses were built upon solid rock foundations: therefore, let us make rightful choices in life.
Dearly beloved, when we hear kingdom words of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us be doers of his words, not just hearers alone; forget or refuse to act upon teachings, counsels, reproves, etc, for Jesus said, those who hear his words but refuse to act upon them, are like men who build houses upon the earth, without foundations, that when flood waters came, beat up forcefully against them; suddenly, their houses fell apart, and were drifted away completely with flood waters; therefore, let us take notes whenever we hear from oracles of the Holy Spirit; and remember to practice them, be not forgetful hearers, rather be doers of his will forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
