Scripture: Psalm 100:1–100:5
There are many signs that your home has been built on a poor foundation. Some of these signs include cracks in the brickwork, doors, and windows that stick when you open them, sagging or uneven floors, or counters and cabinets that are separating from the walls. You might try to fix all of these issues but if you have a poor foundation the problems will not go away. The foundation is what makes the home secure and sound. To have a stable and level foundation means that everything else in the home can come inline. However, if your foundation is poor the home will continually have issues. In our Psalm for this Sunday, the central call is to know that the Lord is God. There are many rivals to the title “God” in our lives and in the world. There are, of course, false religions but there are also false hopes in self, in money, and in government. Who or what you practically follow as God will affect the rest of your life. It is the foundation for how you understand the world and evaluate right and wrong. If you do not know the Lord as God then your life’s foundation will be poor. Yet the one who knows that the Lord is God will have a solid foundation that will bring order and peace to his life. To come prepared for the sermon, take time this week to read and to meditate upon Psalm 100, Deuteronomy 4:35, Joshua 24:15, Psalm 86:9-10, Isaiah 45:5-6, John 17:3, Philippians 2:5-11, Hebrews 4:16; 13:15, and this article on Rejoicing unto the Lord.
