Fortify Part 4
In the fourth installment of the Fortify series, Lead Pastor, Joel Cauley teaches us about building a foundation that will withstand the storms of our lives. We never look at a skyscraper and think, “Wow, what a great foundation it has!” But the truth is that building wouldn’t be able to withstand the storms that it faces without a solid base. In this series, we learn how to fortify our foundation in Christ, so that when the storms of life come we can stand tall and be confident in Him.

Preparation always decreases distractions

No distractions produces more devotion
If Jesus came to your house To spend some time with you,
If He came unexpected, I wonder what you’d do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room, To such an honored guest
And all the food you’d give to Him, Would be the very best.
And you would keep assuring Him, You’re glad to have Him there–
That serving Him in your home, Is joy beyond compare.
But when you saw Him coming, Would you meet Him at the door
With arms outstretched in welcome, To your heavenly visitor?
Or would you have to change your clothes, Before you let Him in
Or hide some magazines, And put the Bible where they’d been
Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?
And I wonder – if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing, the things you always do?
Would you go right on saying, the things you always say?
Or would life for you continue as it does from day to day?
Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you go?
Or would you maybe change your plans for just a day or so?
Would you be glad to have Him meet your closest friends?
Or would you hope they stay away, until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know, the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person, to spend some time with you.
