F is for Foundation...

F is for Foundation

Following is the online definition of foundation:

1: the act of founding
2: a basis (as a tenet, principle, or axiom) upon which something stands or is supported <the foundations of geometry> <the rumor is without foundation in fact>
3a : funds given for the permanent support of an institution :endowment
   b : an organization or institution established by endowment with provision for future maintenance
4: an underlying base or support; especially : the whole masonry substructure of a building
5a : a body or ground upon which something is built up or overlaid
   b : a woman's supporting undergarment : corset
  c : a cosmetic usually used as a base for makeup

For our purpose we will use: a basis upon which something stands or is supported, an underlying base or support, a body or ground upon which something is built up or overlaid.  To stand strong in this world we must have a solid foundation just like a building.  The foundation of our life needs to be Jesus Christ, not wealth, success or fame.  Jesus Christ needs to be our rock!

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I sill shew you to whom he is like:  he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock:  and when the food arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.”  Luke 6:46-49

“According to the grace of god which is given unto me, as a wise master-builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth theron. 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.”
1 Corinthians 3:10-11

Are you building on the solid foundation, Jesus Christ?
