Do you want to build on the Rock and not on the sand? Do you want protection from storms ? How do we do that?
“Therefore whoever HEARS these SAYINGS of Mine, and DOES them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matt. 7:24). Which sayings or words? The ones just previous to this sermon summary. Do you realize that Jesus says this at the end of His sermon on the mount which begins in Matthew 5 ? It would be to our benefit if we read what He said so we would know what to do in building on the Rock. Read Matthew 5-7.
Being faithful means hearing, believing, and committing to doing. A faithful spouse does not just hear and believe in the one he/she loves, they also live and do with their spouse and no other. Faithfulness is a tremendous character quality that DOES (bears fruit) and its roots are in love.
