What is your foundation?
If a foundation of a building is bad can any of it be good?
Could it be that many build on a foundation that is based on their efforts and not based on Jesus?
What does it mean to have a foundation of Jesus Christ?
“By the Grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light, it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each persons work.” – 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
The foundation is the Ultimate Lover Himself- Why is that?
Could it be that “by the grace God has given“ through Jesus Christ everything changed?
Is it possible that God doesnt care how someone “looks” but rather how we “Love?”
Yes the fire will test and if someone builds based on looks or works the building or work will be burned up.
Recently I had someone tell me that they just couldnt have faith in someone or something they couldnt see or touch. But that isnt faith, and that is the only way Christ comes into you- through faith. The faith is the foundation and that is built over time.
For me because of guilt, shame and anger at God that had to be worked through before a foundation of Love, Joy and Peace could be laid through Grace. That Grace brought about the realization that its not AT ALL about my works- my works are trying to build gold, silver or other things that may look good on the outside but the foundation isnt there.
If you allow the foundation of Christ to be built it may take time. If you build based on Love it will take a lifetime of learning. But if you have the courage ask pary this simple prayer and then be prepared for an amazing and sometimes painful but always interesting adventure.
Pray and ask God:
“God please reveal yourself to me. I want to know you and I want to Love you- please help me to be able to do that. No matter what the cost and what I must experience please build in me.”
Dont Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
