Today’s message focuses on the foundational principles of baptism. The storms are coming. The signs that Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24 are increasing both in frequency and intensity. Jesus desired for His disciples to be ready for such times, so he taught them how to live their lives. He taught through His own example. He taught them through the Scriptures. He taught through parables. Most importantly, He taught them to listen to and to rely upon the Holy Spirit for correction, direction, wisdom, protection, and provision. His basic message was “Build your life on a reliable foundation, build your house upon the Rock. May we all take it to heart, and receive the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to build our lives accordingly.
