Four Foundational Truths Important to Me

Introduction:

Do you have any foundational truths that are important to you?

Are there any lessons of faith that govern your life?

What Biblical realities do you go to whether your life is going great or things are not so great?

I have some foundational truths that consume my life, some Biblical thoughts that are so vital to me, that I just thought I would share them with you today.

Text:

Psalm 119:129-130  English Standard Version (ESV)

129 Your testimonies are wonderful; therefore, my soul keeps them.

130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.

Outline: So, what are the foundational truths that I live by and consume my very soul?

  1. The very character of God doesn’t change just because my life does.

Malachi 3:6a

“For I the Lord do not change; therefore, you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.

  1. There is hope in Jesus Christ and that is a fact. 

Romans 15:13

13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

 

  1. The presence of God is available for us all every day.

Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 

  1. The Cross of Jesus Christ is just the beginning.

1 Peter 2:24-25

24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to

 righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like

 sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

 

Conclusion:

  1. Find some Biblical foundations and let them consume you.
  2. Let God’s Word be in you and be your hope.
  3. Breathe in the living Word of God.
