“Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
Remember the parable that Jesus told about the men who built their houses upon different foundations?
One man chose to build his upon the rock, the other upon the sand. Each faced the same storm, but only one was left standing after the rain descended.
“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
What they were built upon determined their sustainability.
Christ spoke of the difference in the men; one was wise and the other foolish. The house built foolishly upon the sand suffered a great fall.
What we build ourselves upon determines whether or not we will be able to withstand the storms of life.
God does not leave us to build alone, He has provided the Foundation.
1 Corinthians 3:9
“For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
Jesus Christ must be our only Foundation.
He is the Word; and it is through Him that we find wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Our lives must be built upon Him and Him alone.
Every decision we make and every desire we have, must be rooted and built up in His Word.
