The Wise Man

Matthew 7:24-27 Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against the house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.  Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell- and great was its fall.

The Bible may list different people groups but there are only two kinds of people.  Those who hear the Gospel and respond in faith, and those who reject the Gospel.  These verses teach the surety of judgment.  We can avoid certain things in life, but no one will escape the judgment of God.  The world is currently under judgment, but we also are in the age of grace.  Today, if we respond to Jesus, we will escape eternal judgment.  If we build our lives on anything but Jesus we will be eternally ruined.  What are you building your life on?
