Luke6 46 49-house_building

  1. 1. HOUSE BUILDING 101 Luke 6:46-49
  2. 2. <ul><li>  46 &quot;Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? 47 As for those who come to me and hear my words and put them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 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. 49 But those who hear my words and do not put them into practice are 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.&quot; </li></ul>Luke 6:46-49 (TNIV)
  3. 3. <ul><li>46-47 &quot;Why are you so polite with me, always saying 'Yes, sir,' and 'That's right, sir,' but never doing a thing I tell you? These words I speak to you are not mere additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundation words, words to build a life on. </li></ul><ul><li>  48-49 &quot;If you work the words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who dug deep and laid the foundation of his house on bedrock. When the river burst its banks and crashed against the house, nothing could shake it; it was built to last. But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don't work them into your life, you are like a dumb carpenter who built a house but skipped the foundation. When the swollen river came crashing in, it collapsed like a house of cards. It was a total loss.&quot; </li></ul>Luke 6:43-45 (Message Translation)
  4. 4. TAKE HOME <ul><li>Look at my hands and feet…are they behaving like Jesus’ hands and feet? This is a test. </li></ul><ul><li>Faith without works? How’s that for a contradiction! </li></ul><ul><li>“ Lord” sounds best to Jesus when spoken by a person with dirty hands. </li></ul>
