Your house will go through the rains, it’s therefore important that is built upon the rock. Jesus taught in Matthew 7:24-27 saying “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell.

Don’t just live for me live from me… stay connected, for I am the vine you are the branches. Love like I do, forgive like I do, be humble as I am, holy as I am, pure like I am, speak like I do, be faithful like I am. When we live from the vine we have no choice but to produce the fruit of the spirit of God (read John 15: 1-5)

I remember growing up in church and being told that we need to be holy. Thinking back on this now I thought being holy was me being good, well the good I thought good was, but it’s so much more. Be holy as I am holy, is what the lord says in 1 Peter 1:16 says. God’s way of being holy is to follow the pattern son, Jesus.
