Building a Biblical Foundation

Luke 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

In Greek foundation – themelios – 2310 – of institution or system of truth

In the natural the foundations has to be dug deep to hit bedrock so that the house or building will stay stable. If a house is built on sand, it will not stand.

Ezra 3:10 And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the LORD, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the LORD, after the ordinance of David king of Israel.

What did Jesus use this parable? 

How do you building a spiritual foundation?
1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Christ came to earth to provide a rock solid foundation for our lives. Isaiah wrote Isaiah 28:16 (King James Version) 16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Building a Biblical Foundation

This rock solid foundation provides us with a place of refuge throughout life. Solomon said, “Proverbs 10:25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.”

How Do We Build A Spiritual Foundation in the Lord?

1 Peter 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

  1. Christ teaches us the importance of doing as well as hearing. Luke 6:47 “Whosoever cometh to me and heareth my saying, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
  2. A rock foundation represents true understanding and right action—true conviction and commitment manifested in righteousness.
  3. A personal relationship with Christ the Rock can we find emotional and spiritual stability—without which even our most dedicated purposes rest on shifting sand.  That means studying God’s word, prayer life and fasting.
  4. Having a foundation of repentance from dead works.  Hebrews 6:1Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Jesus’ metaphor in the parable is apt: A man’s character is like a house.  Unless one builds his character on the rock-solid foundation of God’s Word, he will surely be swept away.

The flood represents the trials of life. Many times, the trials of life descend upon us either through our own lack of character or because of events in the world around us.
