The Most Solid Foundation

God laid a new creation foundation for all people, a stratum wide enough and strong enough to hold everyone who wants to build his of her life on that solid rock foundation.

For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:9)

The New Foundation

The new foundation and provision for rootedness was laid in human time by Jesus. God erected a “tree” as a symbol and instrument to provide the underlying support that our lives require, for by dying on the cross-tree Jesus attacked the root cause of human foundationlessness – sin.

But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When He was hung on the cross, He took upon Himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13)

You Cannot Trust On Your Self

Your self-reliant, self-oriented, self-centered, self-created ways of saving yourself, of being your own rock, cannot be trusted anymore.

God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. (Ephesians 2:8)

Critical Issue of Life

If you have not embraced Jesus as the bedrock of life, you must immediately deal with the critical issue that separates you from God, the founder and foundation of all reality.

Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. (Ephesians 2:1)
