How would you like to build an unshakable life? One that will stand in the storm. Jesus gives us the blueprint for a blessed life.
Luke 6:46-49 ESV
46 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?
47 Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49 But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”
I. The Owner-Shift Progresses From Optional To Obedient
Jeremiah 3:1-6 ESV
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 “Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. 4 And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me: 6 “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the LORD. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.
II. THE SHIFT — Inspiration is greater than Information
III. Shift: Application Leads To Elevation
1 Corinthians 6:19b-20 ESV
19b You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
