Yesterday I stood on the beach while the waves washed over my feet. This was a new experience for me as the beaches in Alaska are generally a little too chilly to enjoy standing barefoot on them. As the water washed over my feet the sand washed out from underneath them. If I continued to stand in one place the sand eventually began to cover my feet.
The Bible tells us to not build our house on sandy ground. So true. Sometimes we build our life on lies. But if we do that and then the waves of life crash over us, the lies we have built our life on crash beneath us. If we insist on staying with our lies then they eventually cover us just like the sand covered my feet.
“… I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31,32
Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Psalm 25:5
