In “LOVES House Foundation” we examined the Only Way to develop a strong, real and lasting Relationship with The God Who Is Love beyond our wildest imagination. The path is called “Grace” and it is 110% based on His Passionate, Unconditional, Relentless and Eternal LOVE for us!
In this short devotional I would like to start to show you another foundation. This foundation I tried and tried to build on for years and most Christians are still trying to build with it. This “effort based” foundation looks really good on paper, sounds really good when taught and destroys Everything and Everyone in its path.
“But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.” – Luke 6:49
Once again as with all our “LOVES Mystery” series the words above were spoken by Jesus to Jews who followed the law, lived the law and were killed or punished Severly for breaking it. The words above were a big part of why Jesus had to die. While all the religious leaders were talking about work hard and do better at keeping the law, Jesus was saying, “come to me all who are weary and I will give you Rest.”
The law was designed to make us weary and it does a Great job at it! Jesus, “The Word made flesh” came to show us that ALL Righteousness is from The Love of God Almighty Who gave up His Only Son to show us His insane Love and Passionate desire for us to have Life Abundant Here and Now!
In tomorrow’s devotional we will go into greater depth as to what this foundation looks like and how to create The Foundation but if you are a type A personality or you just want to really understand what is being said here check out the Bible study called, “Let the Journey Begin” which is hyperlinked in the words or visit the link below:
