STANDING FIRM

Standing Firm

(Psalm 11; Matthew 7:24-27)

“When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

(Psalm 11:3)

As God followers, we are His fingerprints.  We are called to leave His definite and distinct imprint on the world.

How then shall we live?  We need to stand firmly on the solid ground of biblical convictions.

I.  The foolish man built his house upon the sand.  (Matthew 7:26-27)

    A.  The taunts of our foes

    B.  The tendency to fret

    C.  The temptation to flee

          1.  Some withdraw physically

          2.  Some withdraw culturally

          3.  Some withdraw emotionally

          4.  Some withdraw through nostalgia

II. The wise man built his house upon the rock.  (Matthew 7:24-25)

     A.  The firm foundation of truth…God’s revelation of Himself

           1.  God rules

           2.  God sees

           3.  God judges

           4.  God rewards

     B.  The firm foundation of trust…Our relationship with God

Conclusion:  The person who stands for nothing will fall for anything.
