Explore Christ as our foundation using the Scriptures I’ve listed in the show notes above. Read and meditate on Psalm 62, where we learn that God alone is our rock and salvation. Don’t miss out on what you will learn in Deuteronomy 32 by contrasting the faithfulness of God and His unfaithful people. Finally, commit to building your life on the rock of Christ by doing what He teaches in Matthew 7 — hear His words and do them.
