1 Built to Last

2 Strong Foundation - Luke 6: “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? 47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. [h]h 49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. [i] And the ruin of that house was great.”i 46 "Mengapa kamu berseru kepada- Ku: Tuhan, Tuhan, padahal kamu tidak melakukan apa yang Aku katakan? 47 Setiap orang yang datang kepada- Ku dan mendengarkan perkataan-Ku serta melakukannya--Aku akan menyatakan kepadamu dengan siapa ia dapat disamakan-- 48 ia sama dengan seorang yang mendirikan rumah: Orang itu menggali dalam-dalam dan meletakkan dasarnya di atas batu. Ketika datang air bah dan banjir melanda rumah itu, rumah itu tidak dapat digoyahkan, karena rumah itu kokoh dibangun. 49 Akan tetapi barangsiapa mendengar perkataan-Ku, tetapi tidak melakukannya, ia sama dengan seorang yang mendirikan rumah di atas tanah tanpa dasar. Ketika banjir melandanya, rumah itu segera rubuh dan hebatlah kerusakannya."

3 908 years old Europe’s oldest church In 1905, serious signs of structural weakness Original builders laid tree trunks flat on the soft watery soil The foundation was rebuilt and restored – 5.5 years Winchester Cathedral

4 200 years to complete 185 feet, famous for its 18 foot lean In 1990, was about to collapse The foundation was restored – 3 years June 6, 2001, the tower position was returned to the position it was in 1838 Tower of Pisa

5 The importance of Foundation Whether it is a home, a cathedral, a tower or a LIFE, the foundation one has is crucially important Dasar/fondasi sebuah rumah, gereja, bangunan tinggi atau dasar/fondasi KEHIDUPAN sangatlah penting

6 The Foundation reveals: 1. The nature of my faith. 2. The strength of my commitment. 3. The level of my maturity. 4. The healthiness of my attitude. 5. The measure of my teachability.

7 What foundation will you lay down or have you laid down? Foundation of self- achievements and abilities? Wealth? Fame? Career? “Good times?” Prestasi dan kepintaran? Kekayaan? Nama baik/ketenaran? Karir? “Good times?” The parable of Jesus that we heard invites us to examine the foundation we have chosen to build our lives upon

8 “Why do you call me Lord, but do not obey me?” You call me Lord, you call me master, and yet you will not do the things I tell you? People like being called Christian as long as it does not inconvenience them Issue: Obedience

9 Example of a man building a house House – Greek: Oikia or oikos, translated as House of God, Christian Life, Dwelling Place or Spiritual Body (Rumah Tuhan, Kehidupan Kekristenan, Kehidupan Pribadi) “Dug down deep” and laid the foundation on rock, then we will have a strong foundation

10 To dig down deep is to get beyond surface-level Christianity Not just church attendance, but service in and to the church Not just reading the bible, but discovering it’s truth Not lip service, but TRUE obedience to Chris as Lord Melayani di rumah Tuhan Bukan hanya membaca, tetapi mencari kebenarannya Bukan hanya di mulut, tetapi menggenapi atau mentaati kehendaknya

11 V:48 “Like a man... who laid the foundation on the rock.” The word rock used here is from the Greek word PETRA. Jesus in 1 Cor. 10:4 “and the rock was Christ.” Peter in Matt.16:18 “you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church (note: who will build the church? Christ) Rom. 9:23 “See I lay a stone in Zion, that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And the one who puts his trust in HIM will never be put to shame.

12 V:48 “Like a man... who laid the foundation on the rock.” JESUS = The ROCK and the solid foundation upon which we should build Yesus = Batu karang dan satu satunya dasar/fondasi dimana kita bangun kehidupan kita

13 V:48b “When a flood came, the torrent struck that house, but could not shake it because it was well built.” With no foundation in a marriage, we have divorce. With no foundation in our relationship to Christ, we have backsliding With no foundation in our church, we lack faith and vision With no foundation under a house, we have a mess!

14 In verse 49 he shows us what happens when we claim to know him, but do not have that deep and solid foundation. “But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.” In contrast is the person who listens but doesn’t obey. Two houses. May have looked the same on the outside! The difference is in the foundation. Without a solid foundation, when hard times come, when things don’t go right, when we face struggles at home, on the job, at school... we will not have the strength to endure!

15 Isaiah 33:6 He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure! 1 Corinthians 3:11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. Karena tidak ada seorangpun yang dapat meletakkan dasar lain dari pada dasar yang telah diletakkan, yaitu Yesus Kristus.

16 Built to last We need to reevaluate our beliefs and level of obedience to God’s commands so that we are not deceived by the devil. He wants us to think that everything is fine. Each of us know in our heart of hearts if everything is really fine. Without a solid foundation, when hard times come, when things don’t go right, when we face struggles at home, on the job, in marriage, at school... we will not have the strength to endure!

17 Built to last Jesus = Our foundation Being a good listener is not enough, be a DOER! Jangan hanya menjadi pendengar, tetapi PELAKU firman Tuhan Obedience - Ketaatan “By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:10-11).

18 The Foundation reveals: 1. The nature of my faith. 2. The strength of my commitment. 3. The level of my maturity. 4. The healthiness of my attitude. 5. The measure of my teachability.
