The reality is that we are sinful – it is our nature and because of this nature we strive to control our life. As we read in Scripture in Genesis 3:4-5, the serpent promised Eve that eating of the fruit would make her like God and not much has changed today. We all still have the desire to be our own gods and build our lives on what we think, and feel is right. However, this leads to destruction. It is only when build our life on Christ, on the promise of what has already been done in His death and resurrection, that we that we can have true peace and assurance of salvation.
This is the last of our summer series on parables. We will look at the parable of building your house upon the Rock. We will be looking at what it means to truly build a life on the Rock of Christ and making Him the Lord of our life.
