Our time on earth is the beginning of an eternity serving and rejoicing in the Lord.
Someday, when we stand in the Savior’s holy and just presence, the only things that will remain are what we’ve done to glorify Jesus (1 Corinthians 3:10-15).
Commentary from the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, June 23, 2020.
The house represents a religious life; the rain represents divine judgement. Only the one built on the foundation of obedience to God’s Word stands, which calls for repentance, rejection of salvation by works, and trust in God’s grace to save through His merciful provision.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 7:24-27.
