Vintage message from May 21, 1989, recorded at Calvary Chapel of Mira Mesa, San Diego, California.
“Jesus is telling us here what it’s like when we have Him as the foundation. The foundation is taking what we hear and applying it to our lives, practicing what we know Jesus has taught us. If we don’t have that foundation, if we don’t have Jesus Christ in our life and living the life that we know in Him, then we don’t have a foundation at all. If we’re out living our life still as the world lives, we’ve not laid a foundation in Jesus Christ. When the storms come, we fall apart…You can read this Bible a hundred times, learn every word of it, be able to go out in the streets and impress everybody with your great memory, but unless you’ve spent the time with the Lord,…if you’re not leaning on Him, reading the Bible does not help. Your foundation is not this Bible. Your foundation is Jesus Christ. Your foundation is leaning on the Lord, not your own understanding.”
