Build the Future on God’s Word!

In our current teaching series on ‘Building the Future’ we are exploring what we are building the future upon. The first and foremost core value we are building the future upon is Biblical Truth. We are building the future on the truth of God’s Word, not the latest trend and technique. We are not building the future upon the popular ideology of the culture but a devotion to studying and living the truth.

In Matthew 7 Jesus contrasts the man who built his house upon the sand and the man who built his house upon the rock. Both men heard the words of Jesus but only one put them into action. When the wind and waves blew against the house, the substance or lack of obedience was revealed.

When we hear and obey the truth our lives are built on the rock of God’s Word and no matter what circumstances come, we are able to endure by faith, like a good servant of Jesus Christ (1 Tim 4).

We are building the future on Verbal Plenary Inspiration meaning every word in the original writings is absolute and inspired by the Holy Spirit, therefore making the Scriptures inerrant (meaning, it can’t be wrong).

How much authority does God’s Word have in your life? Do you presently have a hunger for the truth that sets you free from your addiction to your self-sufficiency? Does your heart wrestle over certain passages or do you just ignore them, because they’re too hard? You can only call yourself a follower of Christ if you are actually following Christ?

Tomorrow we will explore what building the future on Gods Word looks like.

BE the Change!
