House of Perfect Safety
"Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock." (Luke 6:47,48)
When people build houses, they are not careless, but dig deep because it is the house, under the roof of which all the members of the house will live. Jesus says, "When you hear My Word and do it, you are laying the foundation and digging deep." As you dig deeper and deeper, you get at reality. Only those who observe His Word will get at the rock foundation which is Christ. While you are living the Word, you strongly become conscious of the lifting power. Every time you put the crowbar(obedience) into the earth and put your weight down to it, an extraordinary power lifts you up. You seem to go double the distance deeper than you would ordinarily.
There are angels behind every man who is trying to live God's Word. Every man who is praying according to the Word of God is soon led to the reality, and gets to a place where he meets the living personality who is Christ Himself. Once you contact Him, you have no fear at all and on Him you build your foundation. The Word of God, you have believed is not merely words consisting of letters and phrases which are part of a language but it is the Word with its solidarity in Christ. It is the Word which is Christ Himself. He is the bread of life.
Everyone who is trying to obey His Word is building a house of perfect safety. Floods may come and beat upon it, but it will stand for ever. We see strong walls and strong pillars of the bridges being washed away by floods. The foundation of these bridges are weak. Are you building your life on the Word of God? Are you digging deep? Such men will never be shaken and their homes will never be shaken and their future will be secure.
When you dig deep and
reach the rock bottom, you will get the honey, oil and everything you need for
life. What is wanted in this world more
than stable Christianity and deep peace and loving service? The more you serve others, the more joy you
get. This is the wonderful life and
wonderful discovery Christ brought to us.
He that doeth His Word, diggeth deep and
raises his family on this Rock, the foundation of such a family is Christ. When you all go deeper in prayer and in
obedience to the Word of God, you will also be lifted up into Heaven like
