In Personal Relations 7, we looked at the faith that = upo + stasis or stands under the things in God we hope for. Also we saw that our faith is based on the Rock, Jesus Christ. So next we're going to look closer into what my or your faith is based upon, ( = epi or upon)

How A Builder Looks @ Jesus

Matthew 7:24-25  "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock."

From what we just read in Matthew 7:24 there are 3 facts we learned in how to build our house on the Rock of Jesus Christ:

1)  Hear Jesus' words
2)  Acts on Jesus' words
3)  Jesus' Words ()=(logos) are living & active

Hebrews 4:12   "For the word (logos) of God is living and active...

"These are 2 Greek words for WORD in the Bible and the parables in Matthew 7 & Luke 6 use the Greek word  .
1) Rhema = The written or spoken word, like the Bible

2) Logos = The living & active word, as demonstrated by
                   Jesus' life on the earth. (He 4:12)

Luke 6:46-49   "Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who "DUG DEEP AND LAID A FOUNDATION ON THE ROCK"; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately  it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great."

Genesis 22:17   "... your seed (Abraham's kids, grandkids, and so on), I will greatly multiply like the stars of the heavens and as the sand of the seashore..."

Here God refers to people, Abraham's descendants as sand so - sand = people, or peoples teachings. We can conclude that sand = man's ideas and man's thoughts - not found in the Bible.

Lets look at some sand that are man's ideas up close under higher magnification:

Luke 6:48a
  "he is like a man building a house who dug deep and
laid a foundation on the rock..."

Jesus' words are bedrock
(Nothing - not even 1 grain of sand between me and Jesus!)

Dug Deep

1 Cor 10:4   "... and that Rock was Christ."

Laid His Foundation On The Rock

Hebrews 6:1-2  "Wherefore leaving the image () of the beginning of Christ, let us go on unto maturity not laying again a foundation () of Repentance away from dead works and of Faith on God, the teachings of Baptisms, and of Laying on of Hands, and of the Resurrection of the dead and of Eternal Judgment."
