Read Psalm 119:97-112 and Matthew 7:21-29
The authority in which Christ spoke was so noticeable it astonished his hearers. This Sermon on the Mount pulled no punches in setting before the people the absolute perfections necessary to pleasing the Father. Do you hear these sayings of Christ? Are you persevering in the grace of God? This will show what foundation you are resting in, as the storms of life - the miseries of sin - come hard against your house.
