Building on the Rock

Luke 6:46-49 – 46 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? 47 Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49 But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”



Discussion questions:


  1. What struck you the most from the sermon?
  2. Who is this parable directed toward? Why is that important?
  3. What is the difference between the person who built on the rock and the person who built on the ground without foundation? What does it teach us about Christian life?
  4. Obedience is the fruit of loving God and trusting God. If you look at areas where you find it difficult to obey God, is it because of a lack of love or trust? Why?
  5. How does the gospel heal our lack of love and trust?
