1. Jesus’ conclusion is a gospel call.
C. Words of mine
D. “To Do”
This is what it means to take Jesus as Lord and Savior: to love and trust the words that he gives!
“My sheep hear my voice, and they know me.” (John 10:27)
2. When you see the words, see a relationship.
This whole teaching ministry shows how for all the rest of history the same relationship will be played out. The words of Jesus we put on the table—intimately representing his will and willingness to save—and men and women will accept or reject it.
3. Accept the word of Christ – all of it – and you will have the person of Christ.
a. Jesus is Wisdom.
b. Jesus is the Foundation.
Even as we build brick by brick, day by day, we know it’s not about the house that we built for ourselves. (John 14:1-3)
4. Whatever you prefer over Christ in this life will crumble from its foundation.
“We delighting and playing with mud pies in the slum, not knowing the joys that are offered in a holiday at the beach.” -C. S. Lewis
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” -Jim Elliott
Come and gain what you can’t lose—a home that Christ has built on the rock for you.
