Build Your House On The Rock (Matthew 7:24-27)Phillip Stuckey, October 29, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Jesus’ sermon on the mount calls people to greater righteousness (Matt. 5:17-20). He concludes the sermon with a series of illustrations that show that are only two categories of people: those who hear and obey His word and those who do not. His last illustration is a parable about two builders (Matt. 7:24-27). Let us consider this parable and what it teaches us about what it means to truly commit ourselves to serve the Lord.

Matthew 7:24–27 (Listen)
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
