The Foundation - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series - Arnie Cole


Bible Verses: Matthew 7:24-27

“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

Reflect and Respond:

Think about your spiritual foundation. What is it built on? How does taking in God's Word regularly strengthen your foundation?


Lord, thank You for offering Your wisdom! Help me to take in Your teachings -- mind, heart, and soul -- and live them out daily. Amen.

We look forward to your comments and questions below!

The Word of God that's explained to us is truth and faithful, because our God sustained our life before we believed in God. Now it's time to recognise him, to search and trying to find out the eternal values hidden in Chist Jesus.
We are so prone to forgetting God's commands and ways that we need to keep his Word constantly before us. Israel complained so much about what they could see that they lost sight of God's heart and presence. They lost divine perspective as they chose to focus more on the temporal than the eternal. Seeking meaning in his truth by carefully studying his Word is vital to transformation and gaining divine perspective. In so doing we fortify our faith upon the foundation of Christ. Thank you Abba for a sure foundation upon which to build our lives
Please help God, all I want is a closer walk with You. I really am having a problem convincing myself that I am worthy of You. I pray every night for my family and my ex-husband's family and everyone that has the virus. All U want is for my pain to be taken away. I pray for this to happen in Your most holy and precious name. Amen.
Father help me to obey give me a heart amdind to obey u lord
Sometimes I think that God created me for the purpose of having my 'foundation' always built on sand. I wish I had evidence to the contrary.
Jesus is the rock of the foundation, our faith is build upon that foundation.
Edsel K Smith Thank you Arnie I really liked today's video.
Glad that I made my foundation on the solid rock Jesus.
I pray for solid foundations in your word Lord God in Jesus precious name. Amen
Thank you for today's Godly words of wisdom and instruction for our lives. Lord, on "You the Solid Rock" I stand today delaring that "all other ground is sinking sand". You Lord are my firm Foundation! Help me to continue seeking You, and give me wisdom and understanding of Your Words to mature and live a life worthy of Your calling impacting lives wherever I go.
May peace be with you all forevermore. In all times, let us stand firm in the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ, then preach to others, thus fulfilling His teaching that His Word that it should be taken to all corners of the world irrespective of what may happening! (Should we only accept good from God and not evil? This surely helps us stand firm in His Word). May peace be with you all.
Thank you
