I'll Huff and I'll Puff!
Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs. First, they made a house of straw, but the wolf huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down. Then they made a house of sticks and the wolf huffed and he puffed and he blew that house down also. Finally, they made a house of bricks and we all know how it ended, the wolf blew off a lot of steam, but the house stood firm.
There have been many attempts to build the house of God ever since the days of Moses. Many have looked good from a distance, but up close the straw and the sticks have been revealed and in time the house has come tumbling down. However, right across the world, there are also many who have built with brick - the rock of truth - God's Word.
It is not hard to see that the wolf is still huffing and puffing. Will the house be blown down?
Not according to the builder's guarantee. In Matthew 16:13-18 we read:
When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
Take heart, that as the wolf continues to huff and puff, although there may be a lot of steam, the house will stand firm.
Yours in Christ,
