Daily Bible Podcast Day 006 – Genesis 15-17, Luke 6

November 6, 2012 in Podcasts by Nathan


“‘As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.'” ~Luke 6:47-48

Last week, a hurricane hit New England pretty hard. I live in hurricane country. The house with the firm foundation is the one that best able to weather the storms. The intention of the builder to build a strong house is irrelevant if the structure doesn’t begin with a proper concrete foundation.

(Luke 6 is full of Jesus’ teachings. I had trouble picking. Some are easier, like this one. Others are really challenging, like v20-26, 27-36, and 37-42. I’d love to hear some other’s thoughts on them!)

Knowing Jesus’ words and putting them into practice are not the same thing. Our house got hit pretty hard with a storm this year, and I’d like to think I weathered it okay, but I know I’m not putting Jesus’ words into practice as much as I could or should. This project is part of following Him, but I need to figure out where other of Jesus’ teachings can put into action.

Lord, you’ve asked us to be your hands and feet on earth. Please put people in my path who have needs that I can help meet. Connect me with ministries that are doing your work where I am, so that I can put your words into action. I don’t just want to be a hearer of your words, but a doer.
