The wise Men and Women of God

Matthew 7:24              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 true follower of Christ will find that stability and soundness of heart becomes a guiding presence in their lives. They know what they know. Nothing can sway them from their convictions, trust and faith in the Good News of Jesus Christ.

This person builds his foundation on the Word of God. He acknowledges that all of Scripture is God’s eternal word, is true and accepts it’s description of our sinful fallen need. He relies on God the Father, through His gracious gift of Jesus Christ, to build his life on a Christian foundation.

He hungers and thirsts for God's righteousness in his life. He relies on God in the smallest details of his life as well as the major areas. He knows of his own unworthiness before God because of his sinful nature. All the careful planning and preparation he does is to no benefit if the Lord God wills his life differently.

He accepts the Lords control over his entire life. His love of God is tempered with fear for the almighty power of God himself. His understanding of God controls his actions and reflects his fear of the Lord. His greatest desire is to bring glory to God and love Him with all his heart, soul and mind.
