A house or any other building is only as strong as its foundation. It is certainly worth remembering that the church is called the “house” of God (1 Timothy 3:15). When we born- again we become the “temple” of the Holy Spirit. Paul ask us: “do you not know that you are God’s temple?” You are God’s building. It surely must follow then that both our own persons and our churches must make JESUS the foundation of our lives….
How do I build make Jesus Christ the foundation of my life?
Through His Word. God’s Word reveals the true values by which we must live if we are to solve our massive relationship problems and the other dilemmas that threaten to overwhelm us. As Christians, we build our lives and stake our eternity on the truth of God’s Word. That solid foundation is the revealed Word of God. The Word of God have all the answers to all the fundamental issues of life…
“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 NIV)
Therefor we need to make the Word of God a Standard for our lives… In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…. “…man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD” (Deuteronomy 8:3).
The Word of God is the foundation of faith
As no good building is without a good foundation, there is no solid basis for faith without the Word; faith in God is built on His Word. So, if you feel like you’re weak in faith, there’s a simple cure: God’s Word will increase your faith. Faith comes, it grows, by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). As you faithfully read and study the Word, as you meditate on it and even memorize it, every word will inspire, strengthen, and increase your faith. Fill your mind and heart with positive, encouraging, strengthening, faith-building thoughts from His Word and you’ll soon be amazed at the faith you’ll have—true faith, the kind that can stand any test, the kind that works miracles, the kind that lasts, built on the solid rock foundation of His truth!
