In His parables, Jesus often used easy-to-understand concepts to shed light on spiritual realities. In this sermon, Alistair Begg walks us through a parable about two builders and their two very different foundations. As this story illustrates, focusing on life’s outward trappings is an easy mistake to make—and also a tragic one. The only true, solid foundation is formed from the person, words, and work of Jesus Christ.
24“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
