1 Corinthians 3:12-13
12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw-13 each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.
How are you being built? What is your spiritual structure being assembled with? Obviously, your foundation is Jesus, but what are you bringing into your life that will build something eternal upon the Rock of your Savior. Every believer has the same foundation but not every believer will construct something meaningful out of the life that He’s given them. There are may materials available with which someone could build a house, but very few materials with which someone should build a house. The quality of the structure depends upon the quality of the materials with which that structure is built. Your life is no different. You can gain wisdom and knowledge from worldly methods and systems and then use those to construct something that by world standards is acceptable, or you can develop your relationship with the Master Builder let Him show you who you were meant to be all along. He will equip you with every tool and gift that you need to become the spiritual structure in which He can dwell and draw others to as well. Through time and testing, what He has built in you will endure but that which is not of Him will fall. Is He your architect, or are you building something outside of His plan? – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
