We attend church to be uplifted, to be edified and to be in community with fellow believers. When we are not in church we feel a sense of loss, a yearning almost, for what could have been that Sunday but wasn’t. Every day and especially on Sunday, as we hear and study the parables of Jesus, we are adding bricks to our personal house of faith.

If we hear and study these sayings and put them into action we are building on a solid foundation and our house of faith will stand strong as an offering to the Lord our God. Neither Satan nor man will be able to destroy this gift that we are creating for God.

But, if we hear and study these sayings and go home and do nothing we are building our faith on a cracked and imperfect foundation and our house of faith will fall like a house of cards. Satan and man will be able to tear our faith apart, rend our soul and destroy our offering. We will be lost without ever knowing how or why.

Where have you been building your house of faith?
