A SOLID FOUNDATION
When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Unless we have a solid foundation upon which to build, cracks will appear on the upper levels of our lives. They may go unnoticed for a time, but if left unchecked, cracks will deepen and widen till a will comes crumbling down. Domestically and globally, walls are crumbling wherever we look. Families are falling apart at a faster rate than ever before. There is moral decay, political unrest and people are losing trust in their governments. Confusion, instability and uncertainty are the currency of our times.
The root of these cracks is not found in our families or our governments but in a faulty foundation. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
A solid foundation is built on truth, and Jesus Christ is the Truth to which all of Scripture bears witness. The Christian faith is rooted firmly in the exposition of Scripture and forms how we act on the basis of what God reveals in His Word.
Our actions do not exist in isolation, but are a result of what lies under the surface. If our foundation is faulty, we will be easily led down the path of least resistance. Any foundation not built on Jesus Christ is built on shifting ground, but when we apply the truth of Scripture to our lives, we find a logical, coherent picture on which to build on a solid foundation.
Dear Lord Jesus, You are eternally faithful, and Your truth prevents any cracks that lead us astray. Thank You for being the firm foundation on which to build our lives. Amen
