Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 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 (Mathew 7:24-25).
The rock is Jesus Christ and the house represents a life that is pleasing to God. A life well spent living on the foundations of obedience to God's word. It is only this house that can stand against the divine judgement. For it calls for repentance, rejection of salvation by works, and trust in God's grace to save through his merciful provision.
Luke 6:47-48 describes it in this way; Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 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. 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.
Lord, I come to you today with a humble heart. May we hear Your word today and act upon it. May we open our eyes so that we may behold wondrous things out of your law. Hide not your commandments from me. My soul is consumed with longing for your rules at all times. Keep my soul from wandering so that I do not sin against You. Teach me your statutes and make me understand the way of your precepts. Strengthen me according to your word. Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law. I cling to your testimonies, O LORD; let me not be put to shame. Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart. Thank you for Jesus Christ who chose to be the redeemer of man by giving himself once for all. For it is by his stripes we are healed. It by his death and resurrection that we have been restored in right relationship with You. May my prayer be pleasing to you. May it be a sweet sound and a pleasing aroma. I offer my praise and worship to You alone. It is in Jesus that I hope and put my trust. And it is in Jesus precious name I lift my prayer, amen.
