A Firm Foundation

What’s the difference between a wise person and a foolish person?  In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus tells a story that answers that question.

Two men.  Two houses.  Two storms.  One house remained standing.  Why?

Both men listened to the words of God — they both received the same instruction on how to build their houses.  The wise man put those words into practice while the foolish man put those words on the backburner and did his own thing.

A church full of people who listen to the Word preached every week is one thing.  A church full of people who walk out the doors and put those words into practice is another.  Let’s continue to build Emanuel on the firm foundation of God’s Word!

See you Sunday!
