Part 2

Hey my Friends,

Last week I talked about a physical foundation. This week I want to talk about your spiritual foundation. Are you on a firm spiritual foundation? Do you know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that if you die right now, that your life is secured in Heaven?

If you can't say beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your life has been secured in Heaven, and you are just hoping that you will make it there by being a good person, would you like to have the assurance of salvation that comes from Jesus Christ in your life today?

The Lord says in Isaiah 28:16

Isaiah 28:16 So the LORD, and King speaks. He says, "Look! I am laying a stone in Zion. It is a stone that has been tested. It is the most important stone for a firm foundation. The one who trusts in that stone will never be shaken. (NIRV)

The stone in Isaiah 28:16 is Jesus Christ. If you put your trust in Jesus Christ and the saving work that He did on the cross to pay your sin debt, then you will be standing on a firm foundation, and you will be saved.

In John 14:6 Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."

You can't trust in good works, works done for God or anything to set you free from your sin. However, if you put your trust in Jesus Christ, you will be saved. The Psalmist said in Psalm 20:7

"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." (NIRV)

I would leave you with the lyrics of a great song by Steven Curtis Chapman. It is based on Psalm 20:7. It's called "We Trust in the Name of the Lord our God."

God Bless You.

In Christ,
Rob

We Trust in the Name of the Lord our God
Words and Music by Steven Curtis Chapman

Some trust in the chariots,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God
Some trust in horses,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God

Some trust in the work they do,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God
By His grace all the work is through,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God
Some trust in the wealth of things,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God
Name worth more than anything,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God

We trust in the name of the Lord our God,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God
His Love never fails, His name will always prevail,
We trust in the name of the Lord our God.
