All Buildings are Tested

Severity of the Test

From all directions

Rain upon the roof

Flood against the foundation

Wind against the wall

Our trials come from every direction

All Buildings are Tested

Impartiality of this testing

Both houses exposed to same perils

Storms of life strike all of us

Matt. 5:45 “For he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

All have the same passions

All live in the same evil world

All Buildings are Tested

Consider this :

Wise man built for fair weather and the storm

Foolish man built only for fair weather

During fair weather the two houses looked the same

Our lives may look the same but when the final test of judgment comes, the differences will be revealed!

Heb. 9:27
