Jesus Christ: Our Firm Foundation


God literally shook the earth at various times throughout history. When His Son died on the cross, the earth trembled (Matthew 27:51), and when Jesus Christ returns, there will be even more upheaval (Zech. 14:4).

But even today, whether it’s political alliances, financial systems, or other forms of human security, the Lord frequently allows the various foundations of our world to shake. That’s when we realize how flimsy the institutions on which we’ve pinned our hopes are.

Not to mention that financial problems, relationship conflicts, illness, or loss can all devastate our personal life. Things may appear to be well for a time if we rely on the shaky foundation of human understanding, achievement, or pride, but a weak foundation cannot resist the storms of life.

The believer, on the other hand, can find calm even in the midst of chaos. That’s because we know God uses the upheavals He permits to happen for a reason. Adversity has a way of shaking us out of our complacency and self-centeredness, and it serves as a lesson not to put our faith in ourselves or the world’s fleeting institutions.

There is only one solid foundation: a true, saving connection with Jesus Christ, which will sustain us through any and all difficulties.
