Rev. Dr. Fred Vanderwerf reads from the story of the wise man who built his house upon a rock found in Matthew 7: 24-27, where Jesus calls us to hear his words and to put them into practice. Or as Oswald Chambers writes, “The only proper goal in life is that we manifest the son of God.” The world desperately needs Christians to be like Jesus. And our first step toward being like Jesus is stop and linger and take in the fullness of Jesus’ loveliness.
