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 any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:10-11
No matter who you are, eventually your life will be rocked by significant event. The foundation that your standing on will determine your outcome. When we foolishly build on sand, eventually the storms of life come in and we sink, but when we build on the rock we can withstand any storm.
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 person’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:12-13
Many believe money will buy them a false sense of security, but green paper won’t save your life. There is only who can save and that’s our Lord Jesus. Don’t build your life on false idols,build your life on a solid foundation.
If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved–even though only as one escaping through the flames. 1 Corinthians 3:14-15
There will be fire and trials in life, but it will only make you stronger, the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Those who have deep roots of faith can withstand the storms, but those who faith is shallow will collapse at the first trial.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24
Jesus told us those who follow him are building on “The Rock” . Why? Because Jesus is the truth , life, and the way. Follow false idols and false religions is like building on the sand, there is no foundation or hope
If your storm hasn’t hit its coming, be ready. Build your foundation on Jesus Christ, follow truth, persevere under trials in Jesus Name Amen.
