“...everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 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. 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. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” - Jesus
The following is a re-enactment of Jesus most famous sermon.
According to Jesus the following is the only way to really know what he's talking about. It's the only way to really understand him.
1. Take him at his word that his Father will take care of you;
2. Therefore not worry about yourself.
3. Which frees you to put all your effort into doing what he says.
If you’re doing that you’re trusting him. (And he will help you. See Acts 5:32.) If you’re trying to understand him any other way, you are building your house on sand.
“Men would understand: they do not care to obey,—understand where it is impossible they should understand save by obeying. “ - George MacDonald
Here’s a question for my Christian brothers and sisters.
If Jesus lived in your house, what do you think he would do?
Would he wash up?
If you have a lawn, would he mow the lawn?
Of course he would.
If you're a follower of Jesus, would you do those things with him?
Yes you would. You'd follow him around doing everything you could with him.
Following Jesus is easy when you think about it. We only have to think, "What would Jesus be doing if he was here in bodily form?" Then once you have the answer, join him in spirit by doing what you know he would do. (If you don't know anything about Jesus, you can find out all about him in the New Testament.)
"...whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant" -- Jesus

The following poem was written by a Scot in the 1800's, at the height of the British Empires power; it's about true greatness.
