MACEDONIA MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH Macedonia Mis- sionary Baptist Church UNSHAKEN! Watching the occasional stories of the con- struction of the new World Trade Center in New York was a fascinating experience. Did you notice, however, that before they could go up, they had to go down - way down? It is an obvious law of gravity as well as one of construction: The only way to assure that a building will survive an earthquake or strong winds during a storm is to build it on a foun- dation that is firm. And, only a life that has a firm foundation will be able to withstand the storms and tests of time and life. Many of us, unfortunately, give little thought to this critical fact of life. We put all of our time and treasures into the "visible" parts of our life and neglect and ignore our foundation. But, storms and tests come to everyone. They are inevitable. They come in the form of troubles and tragedies, suffering and sickness, loss and grief. Regardless of the amount we in- vest in the "superstructure," life will collapse without a firm foundation. So we all face the same question: What is essential for the foundation of a life that will survive the storms and tests of life? A wise "builder" put it in one sentence: "Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever!" Those who put their "trust in the Lord" are not only secure and safe but guarded and grounded in the One who created Mount Zion. In emphasizing this fact, the Psalmist contin- ued his explanation of this by adding, "As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people both now and always." What an incredible picture: The God who pushed mountains from the floor of the earth to surround and protect His children in Jeru- salem is waiting to surround and protect us from the disasters of life. If we want a solid foundation, we have it: "For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid: Christ Jesus!" Scripture for Today: Psalm 125:1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever! Visit us at: members in Lockhart along with Rev. W.M. Daniels, pastor invite all to attend services.
