  2. 2. <ul><li>Q1: </li></ul><ul><li>What is a good analogy for your spiritual life? </li></ul><ul><li>It’s like … </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Q1: What is a good analogy for your spiritual life? It’s like … </li></ul><ul><li>A1: building a house </li></ul><ul><li>R1: Matthew 7:24-27 </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Matthew 7: (Jesus said,) 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” (NIV) </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Q2: </li></ul><ul><li>What are the two choices of locations for your building’s foundation, and what does each represent? </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Q2: What are the two choices of locations for your building’s foundation, and what does each represent? </li></ul><ul><li>A2: a rock – comes to, listens to and practices Jesus’ words; or the sand – hears but doesn’t practice the words of Jesus </li></ul><ul><li>R2: Luke 6:46-49 </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Luke 6: (Jesus said,) 46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. 48 He is 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. 49 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.” (NIV) </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>46 「你们为什麽称呼我『主啊,主啊,』却不遵我的话行呢? 47 凡到我这里来,听见我的话就去行的,我要告诉你们他像什麽人: 48 他像一个人盖房子,深深的挖地,把根基安在磐石上;到发大水的时候,水冲那房子,房子总不能摇动,因为根基立在磐石上(有古卷:因为盖造得好)。 49 惟有听见不去行的,就像一个人在土地上盖房子,没有根基;水一冲,随即倒塌了,并且那房子坏的很大。」 </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Q3: </li></ul><ul><li>What are your choices for building materials, and how will each endure the quality test? </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Q3: What are your choices for building materials, and how will each endure the quality test? </li></ul><ul><li>A3: gold, silver and costly stones will be purified; wood, hay and straw will be consumed </li></ul><ul><li>R3: I Corinthians 3:12-14 </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>V3: I Corinthians 3:12 If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. 14 If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. 15 If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames. (NIV) </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Q4: </li></ul><ul><li>Does the Bible directly say which things make up a solid spiritual foundation? </li></ul>

(NIV) </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>1 所以,我们应当离开基督道理的开端,竭力进到完全的地步,不必再立根基,就如那懊悔死行,信靠神、 2 各样洗礼、按手之礼、死人复活,以及永远审判各等教训。 </li></ul>

And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast. (NIV) </li></ul>

  30. 30. <ul><li>Matthew 25:34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ (NIV) </li></ul>

(NIV) </li></ul>
  37. 37. <ul><li>John 7 (Jesus said) 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. 57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven.
