Doing the Will of God; Building on Rock

 

Matthew 7:21-29

 

We’re here to do the will of God on earth.

We’re here to live the Gospel and to put

The Words of Christ into daily practice.

Then we will be doing the will of God.

 

Praying and fasting and going to Church

Are not enough.  We must be faithful like

Job and Abraham in tribulation.

 

Practice the teachings of Jesus daily.

Our houses built on rock will sustain storms.

Our faith keeps us firm through trials and errors.

 

Jesus teaches us with authority.

May Legatus become majority.

 

Even God took a day off.  After God

Had a day of rest, He wrote the Bible.
