A Word of Encouragement – Lay Leader Tim Olsen

Hey church our encouraging word for this week is found in Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus said,

Matthew 7:24-27

“Therefore 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.”

When some things happen in our lives that are difficult (the storms of life), what our spiritual foundation is made of is revealed and tested. In the word of the old hymn “on Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand,” I want to encourage you to take each day to strengthen that “foundation” by spending time with God in prayer and bible reading and in service to others.
