We hope you could join us on Sunday for Pastor Kent’s powerful message on Foundations. Being built on a firm foundation is imperative to weathering the storms we face. Pastor reminded us that God loves foundations and that He, Himself, laid the foundation of the earth (Psalms 102:25, Hebrews 1:10, Isaiah 28:16). There are three aspects of a Biblical foundation laid out in Ephesians 2:19-20, which are apostles, prophets, and Jesus Christ as the Chief Cornerstone. “Everything about the church should point to one thing…Jesus”, says Pastor.
The main text of the message was 2 Timothy 2:19a, “Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure.” Our Pastor boldly encouraged us that “When we see the failure of people that are supposed to be our protectors… educators, ministers, politicians… ‘Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure. When all hell breaks loose, when elections are upside down, when politicians become traitors, when cancer and Covid are out of control… ‘Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure.” When our lives are built on the foundation of Jesus Christ, we can have confidence knowing that, while everything may fail around us, we are built on a foundation that will last!
We must remember that our nation, the United States of America, was founded on the Lord Jesus Christ. Pastor Kent powerfully stated, “Jesus Christ, the church, and the family have been the strength, the power, and the success of America. That’s why Jesus Christ, the church, and the family are under attack.” As Christians in this hour, it is time to stand boldly for Biblical principles and not bow to the tactics of the enemy. There is an answer to the world’s questions, and it is Jesus!
1 Corinthians 3:11 (NLT) says, “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.” When Jesus laid on a wooden cross, and they picked the cross up and dropped it down into the earth, He was laying a sure and costly foundation with His own life. When our foundation is Jesus, “the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” With conviction and zeal, Pastor Kent preached, “You can pass every law you want in America, you can put believers in jail, but when the day is done, the very power of the Word is that we triumph, we prevail! Why? Because the foundation of God standeth sure”.
You and I must make up in our minds that there is no price too high to pay for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Remember that nobody loves you like Jesus. Nobody stands by you like Jesus saying, “hold on!”. Pastor Kent invites us all to renew our passion for Jesus and said, “Til the very last breath in your body you stand on the foundation of the Lord Jesus Christ and declare, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
