The Results of Digging Deep…..

Therefore, everyone who hears these sayings of mine and does them will be like a discreet man who built his house on the rock.
And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and lashed against that house, but it did not cave in, for it had been founded on the rock. 
Furthermore, everyone hearing these sayings of mine and not doing them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and struck against that house, and it caved in, and its collapse was great.
================================
Indeed, merely listening to Bible teachings or reading the Bible at home is like putting a house on top of sand—no digging required. But to do, or apply, Christ’s teachings is challenging. It involves digging down deep to reach solid rock.

Hence, whether you stand firm as a follower of Christ or not depends on whether you apply what you hear or not. When you apply in your daily life what you learn through Bible study, you are like the discreet man who dug down deep. Therefore, each Bible student should pause and ask himself: ‘Am I a hearer, or am I a doer? Do I merely read and study the Bible, or do I follow the Bible’s commands when making decisions?
