Matthew 7:24-25 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”
The Scene: High-rise buildings, apartments, houses sitting over drilled pier casings, sunk deeply into the ground. Circled numbers as follows: 1) surface, above grade 2) earth, below grade 3) drilled piers, footings extending down to bedrock, deep in the ground + steel casings filled with concrete and structural steel reinforcing rods inside the casings 4) bedrock footing for the drilled piers to rest upon.
Holy Spirit insight: The high-rise buildings would not stand for long without a firm foundation, set upon rock. Our faith cannot last, either, without a firm foundation. (Built on the Rock: Jesus Christ our Lord.)
Ephesians 2:19:22 “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”
Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”
