MATTHEW 7:24-29

Discuss the Word

  1. Why does Jesus end his sermon with such a stark warning? Why is this issue so serious?
  2. When is a time you saw the storms of life sweep away someone whose life was built on the sand?
  3. In what ways are you building your life on the rock or on the sand?
  4. Close your time praying and celebrating God’s mercy to invite us to life in Jesus and a rock which we can build our lives and eternity upon.

During the Week 

The folks listening to Jesus were astonished at his teaching. But astonishment alone is not faith, and only faith can save us. 

We must not only hear Jesus’ words, we must also do them. This is the movement of God’s word from our heads to our hearts and lives.

Building your life on the rock in a holistic endeavor – it’s every area of your life, not just parts of it. It is doing all the words of Jesus, which begin with the beatitudes from the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount – recognizing our spiritual poverty, mourning our sins, and hungering and thirsting for God’s righteousness. 

Below you will find a different question for each day of the week. Slowly re-read the passage each day and then answer the corresponding question and complete the action step. 

Read Matthew 7:24-29 daily before answering the questions:

Monday Make a list of everything the passage tells you about God or Christ.

Tuesday – Make a list of everything the passage tells you about yourself (anything it puts a finger on in you).

Wednesday – Make a list of each example to follow or avoid, commands to obey or do, and promises to claim.

Thursday – If I really believed this, how would I be different?

Friday – Share what you have learned this week with a mentor, spouse, home church host, or a pastor.

Memory verse – Memorize and pray this prayer this week: Matthew 7:24-25 –

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house,  but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.”

Ways to Give

Giving of our finances is a response of worship to God who created us, saved us, and is continually at work in the lives of each of His children to reflect more and more of the character of Jesus Christ. Giving is an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Christ in a way that we can find our hearts freed to reflect the generous heart of God.  

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”

2 Corinthians 9:7-8
