I wrote this story not long after my conversion 13 years ago. It is an allegory in the tradition of The Pilgrim’s Progress. Though, at the time I penned it I had never even heard of John Bunyan’s classic work (which has so obviously influenced me). The House that God Built tells the story of a young man who is building his house on the solid rock of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The builder meets opposition from his neighbors but stands firm on God’s eternal word. He perseveres through the trials and tribulations of life that we all experience, but without faltering. His faith in God is unshaken by any circumstance because his foundation is on the rock. This is the story of every man born-again by the Spirit of God.
