The Rock Of Our Salvation
When anyone is going to build something, they first have to lay the right foundations, because if they don’t what they are building will come crashing down.
Even if their building takes longer than expected, they can not afford to cut corners on the foundation. It amazing how many people want the end result BUT do not want to go through the process. There is a phrase that states “ Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die”.
As believers we have a blessed hope in Christ of eternal life, but in order to enter into that rest, we first have to get through this life, with all of the challenges that this life presents to us.
This is why we need to be building on the right foundation, so the weight of this life can be supported by something stronger than ourselves:
Mat 11:28 Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.
Mat 11:30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
Mat 11:28 If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you will find rest.
Mat 11:30 This yoke is easy to bear, and this burden is light.
So you see we have a right foundation to build on and he name is Jesus or Yahshua in the Hebrew.
Psalms 61:1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
Psa 61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
If you try to get through this life on your own, by your own ability, you will fail. You may have every good intention of living right and being a good person, but unless you are building on the right foundation you will be a slave to sin and to your flesh.
It all starts when you become Born Again:
Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
This is simply coming to a place of recognition of your current state and understanding and believing that what Jesus did on the cross through the shedding of his blood has cleansed your sins
Rom 10:8 But what does it say? "The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart"; that is, the Word of Faith which we proclaim;
Rom 10:9 Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.
Once you have done this you have laid the foundations on which to build. This is called freedom!
Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Joh 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
Joh 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
Joh 8:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Once you understand about this basic simplicity of the gospel, you are now in a position to allow the Holy Spirit to direct you and mentor you, so you can start building the building, getting to know the deeper things of God.
Unfortunately there are many people out there who are trying to build a building of righteousness without any foundation or the wrong foundation, that is why there are people that think they are a Christian just because you go to church every week, or they were born a Christian because they come from a Christian family or they are a Christian because when they were a baby somebody sprinkled water on their head.
It is so important that the basics are understood because the enemy of our souls is trying to tie us up in knots and that is why so many people complicate what is a simple gospel message.
Their is a song that says: “ On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand”
This is what we all need to understand because our very lives depend on it.
Understanding the basics to our business is very important also and many times people try to complicate the simple processes to our business, which is :
1. Make a list
2. Set your goals
3. Connect your list to the Reliv System
Many times when people are finding this business difficult, it is because they are trying to build on the wrong foundation, trying to do this all by themselves.
The Reliv system has been designed in such a way that as long as a person has a good work ethic and has some patience and long suffering, they WILL build a Reliv build.
Time and effort are the two components that we all need to put in place, in order to be successful with Reliv.
Do you think for one second if Dr Theodore did not work at those two elements, he would have last 10 years and over 850 separate trial formulations before he got the Classic?
So value your goals and put the work in to achieve them.
Remember God is on your side.
