16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
-A foundation is defined as “the lowest load-bearing part of a building.” Jesus is the “Sure Foundation” that has been laid by God the Father and upon which everything depends. Think about that. Moral surety is not the foundation of Christianity; guiding philosophy is not the foundation of Christianity; religious precept is not the foundation of Christianity. Our whole religion rises and falls on one thing- Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that we “can do all things through Christ” (Philippians 4:13), but Jesus Himself warns us that “without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5) To have Jesus is to have absolute certainty that your past, present and eternity is secure; but not having Jesus means you have nothing.
