Today's Reading: Matthew 7
Key Verse: Matthew 7:24 (NKJV)
"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; and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock."
Jesus' disciple Simon listened in person to the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus had given him another name, Peter, or "Rock." Peter had many lessons to learn before he could stand as a solid rock to deliver the foundational message for Jesus' church on the day of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church (Acts 2).
John Paul II said during his visit to Canada (he spoke French as he was in Quebec City), "Pierre est une petit pierre, mais Jesus est Le Grand Pierre…Peter is a small rock, but Jesus is the Great Rock."
He was right!
Let us build our lives on "The Great Rock," the Lord Jesus Christ.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Dear Lord Jesus, My life is being built on You as my sure foundation. On You I am secure forever. Amen!
