Ever heard a really good speaker or read a fantastic book that made you think, "I need to make changes in my life and this is exactly what I needed!" You leave that speech or book feeling inspired to live differently, but within a few days or weeks, you are right back into the same old routine. This happens to the best of us far too often.
Jesus seems to understand this. Which is why he concludes his most famous sermon with a powerful illustration - one that should help us not just hear his words and go back to life as usual, but rather an illustration that will help us hear his words and apply them to our lives.
So if you are ready to have your life changed, listen in to Jesus' famous sermon-ending words.
