Thursday the First Week of Advent

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them
will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.
And everyone who listens to these words of mine
but does not act on them
will be like a fool who built his house on sand.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
And it collapsed and was completely ruined.”

-Matthew 7:24-27

Here Jesus tells us that hearing his words is not enough, that we must act on them.
Being a christian means more is asked of us than simply going to mass on Sunday. We must make Jesus the rock on which we build our lives. He must be a part of everything we do.

How is Jesus calling you to action today?
