Daily Meeting Place
Building on Solid Rock
Today's Passage: Matthew 7:21-29
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
For Familiar Passages. Read Anew!
Read the passage from Last to First!
Sometimes we have read a passage of Scripture so many times we can't see it with new eyes.
How can we change the passage without changing the meaning?
What would we see if we take a passage and begin with the last verse and read the verses from Chapter 3.
For example: Chapter 3:10-1.
21. "Not everyone who calls out to me 'Lord! Lord! will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in Heaven will enter.
22. On judgment day many will say to me, 'Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.'
23. But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws.'
Building on a Solid Foundation
24. "Anyone who listens to my teach and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.
25. 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.
26. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn't obey it is foolish, like a person who build a house on sand.
27. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against the house, it will collapse with a mighty crash."
28. When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,
29. for he taught with real authority ⏤ quite unlike their teachers of religious law.
Matthew 7:21-29 NLT
