What Jesus Did! 'Do It!' — Matthew 7:24-27

Thursday, March 30, 2017

"Every person that hears these things I say and obeys is like a wise man. The wise man built his house on rock. It rained hard and the water rose. The winds blew and hit that house. But the house did not fall, because the house was built on rock. But the person that hears the things I teach and does not obey those things is like a foolish man. The foolish man built his house on sand. It rained hard, the water rose, and the winds blew and hit that house. And the house fell with a loud noise."
— Matthew 7:24-27 NLT
Illustration of Matthew 7:24-27 NLT — "Every person that hears these things I say and obeys is like a wise man."
