Start with prayer Introduce myself and my testimony related to the preaching, as an introduction.

Preaching: The Sure Foundation Story about Matthew 16:13. Who do man say that I, the Son of man, am? Explain what was the source that revelation came to Simon Peter, was not by hearing the opinions of others or by what he was taught, but God revealed it tohim. Talk about Peter’s character and his hunger for God. And how He wanted to hear from the mouth of God. Explain the verse: “On this rock (of knowledge revealed by God) I will build my Church, and the gates of (hell) shall not prevail against it.”(Matt. 16:18). Explain how important is to hear from God, the revealed Word, not just memorize verses, and how we change from being simple (void ofunderstanding) to being mature (filled with understanding). This illuminated Word in our hearts is the foundation Jesus said His church would be grounded on. Jesus compared the unveiled Word of God to a rock. A rock speaks of stability and strength. We recall the parable of two houses, with one built on rock and the other on sand. When adversity, such a persecution, tribulation and affliction, stormedagainst both houses, the one built on sand was destroyed, while the house built on rock stood. Some things we need to hear from God cannot be found in the Bible. We must have the revealed word of God for these decisions as well. Without it our decisions are founded on unstable ground. What God reveals by His Spirit cannot be taken from us. This must be the foundation of all we do. Read Mark4:16-17 change root by foundation. A person who is not stabilized or founded in the revealed Word of God is a prime candidate to be moved along by the storm of offense.

Read 1 Corinthians 3:11, “For no other foundation can anyone lay than which is laid, which is Jesus Christ”. As we seek Him who is the living Word of God, He will be revealed, and we will be established. We can have a house built onsand that is five stories high and beautiful, decorated with the most elaborate materials and craftsmanship. As long as the sun is shining, it looks like a bulwark of strength and beauty. Next to that house we can have a single-story plain house. It is almost unnoticeable and possible unattractive compared to the beautiful edifice next to it. But it is built on something we can’t see- a rock. Aslong as no storms strike, the five-story house looks much nicer. But when it encounters a severe storm, the five-story house collapses and is ruined. It may survive a few minor storms, but not the hurricane. The plain, one-story structure survives. The larger the house, the harder and more noteworthy its fall. Many people may look as the five-story person, the picture of strength, stability andbeauty. But when a mighty storm blows in, they are relocated. Be sure that you build your life on God’s revealed Word, not what others say. Keep seeking the Lord and listening to your heart. Don’t do or say things because everyone else does. Seek Him and stand on what illuminated in your heart!
