As any home builder will tell you, the foundation of the house is most important. If there is a good foundation, the house will be able to withstand nearly every kind of weather. However, if the foundation is weak, the house is endangered by just about any kind of unnatural weather. The same holds true in the kingdom of God. How we need a good, solid foundation.
The prophet Isaiah declared, Therefore thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; he that believes shall not make haste.’ This prophecy was fulfilled in Jesus Christ, the foundation laid for the salvation of mankind.
It is supremely important for us to continue in this important truth, the truth that our salvation is entirely secure in the foundation of Jesus Christ. We are complete in the Foundation, which is an everlasting foundation. He, and He alone, is the Rock (not Peter) upon which the church is built. Jesus is the Rock that we need to look to. Never allow the winds of adversity to shake you from Him. His Word is the Rock upon which we stand.
Due to the importance of the foundation of Jesus and the Scriptures, rest assured that the devil will make every attempt to destroy those foundations. Satan has two objectives: to keep us away from the truth about Jesus, and to keep us out of the Word of God. Remember, Scripture tells us to consider Jesus, to be rooted and built up in Him, and to have our hearts established with grace. Man’s salvation is entirely out of his own hands or performance. The Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world, has come!
What is your foundation today? Who is your foundation today? If you and I look at ourselves, we will certainly get frustrated, feel guilty, and ultimately give up hope. Brethren, your good works for a foundation are no hope at all. Man’s hope is Christ Himself. You can come to Him just as you are, because He came to save you.
