If you are convinced of the truth of God's Word, what is the appropriate response?
Jesus has a very direct answer to that question, "Obey it!"
What difference does it make?
Again, Jesus answers with a very convincing and convicting word picture.
He who hears God's Word and obeys it will build a firm foundation for his life. The one who disregards and disobeys the Word of God will not survive the storms of life. He is building his life on an unstable foundation.
The truth of God's Word forms a bedrock foundation for those who hear it and heed it.
So, what is the ultimate proof of the truth of God's Word? It is surviving the violent storms of life.
I ask you, "What are you building your life upon?"
How are you treating the Word of God?
Will your life be able to withstand the storms that are coming?
