Luke 6:46-49
"A Strong Foundation"

In this message we explore Jesus' sobering words of warning that speak to the fact that mere verbal profession of his Lordship does not confirm one's standing as a Christian, that obedience to Jesus is of supreme importance.  Jesus is not arguing for a "works righteousness," saying that we are saved by our obedience, but he is making the point that genuine faith results in submission to him manifested in obedience.  Like digging down deep and building a solid foundation, obedience to Jesus is not easy, but it is good, and it is what we were made for.
