Life with Jesus

At “work”, we try to make the kids (force them) to memorize our theme verse for the week.  Usually it’s sung to the tune of Farmer in the Dell or Stairway to Heaven or some obscure Russian song that no one knows the tune to. When we first started, I thought it was dumb but I played along begrudgingly and sung the songs. Well, kids, I have news. It works. I was trying to think of a verse about love and lo and behold the stupid song popped into my head and it fit perfectly.  Yesterday I read in Luke about the man who builds his house on a rock and the man who builds his house not on a rock. I never realized before why they were placed into those categories.  You build your house on a rock if you listen AND do what you heard. The sand is only listening.  Because that seems to be a problem- i’ll hear a really amazing sermon and take notes and what not but come Monday,  I couldn’t tell you if I was even at church- I’ve started taking every passage I read and condensing it into a succint statement, like “listen and do” or “wait for Godly justice”.  Okay, so it’s elementary…

  1. “You build your house on a rock if you listen AND do what you heard. The sand is only listening.” I don’t get it.
