My hope is built on nothing less

“The house built on the rock is the life that empties itself of self-righteousness and pride, that is overwhelmed by and mourns over its own sin, that makes the maximum effort to enter the narrow gate and be faithful in the narrow way of Christ and His Word. Such a builder does not build his life or place his hope on ceremony, ritual, visions, experiences, feelings, or miracles but on the Word of God and that alone.”  ~John MacArthur

 “There are lots of nice things you can do with sand: but do not try building a house on it.”  ~C. S. Lewis
