Today my sermon in a song is one of my all time favorites. It is Sandi Patti singing "Upon This Rock." I love this song. Everytime I hear it I can feel the presence of God sweeping over me and I feel like Popeye when he eats that can of spinach. I don't know about you....but why would anyone build a foundation on sand? I mean...come on. I grew up in South Florida and I know first hand what happens when you build your house on sand......yep...it sinks! I had a friend once, her name was Sarah...she and her husband lived in a condo on Lake Worth....when the builders dredged the land....they did not let it season.....and two years after moving into her new condo....they found themselves in a mess, in the middle of a major lawsuit all because the place was sinking. In Matthew 7:24-27 Jesus warns us about this and still today there are people who will not listen. Get with the program folks. If you want a firm foundation....you have got to build on rock. 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
The songs speaks for itself....so all I have left to say is.....And all the people said......AMEN! Have a blessed Sunday!
To Joey, With Love....WINNER!
