Today’s scripture reading:
A building is only as solid as its foundation. The foundation of our life is Jesus Christ; He is our base, our reason for being. Everything we are and do must fit into the pattern provided by Him. Are you building your life on the only real and lasting foundation, or are you building on a faulty foundation, such as wealth, security, success, or fame? (NLT)
1 Corinthians 3:9-11 – We work together as partners who belong to God. You are God’s field, God’s building—not ours.
Because of God’s special favor to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any other foundation than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.
We are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building. –1 Corinthians 3:9 (NIV)
Mary Hunt Webb (New Mexico) titled her story “MORE THAN A BUILDING;” here is a portion of Mary’s story:
“. . . I have felt sad when church buildings are sold and transformed into homes or businesses. However, I am learning not to lament over such situations because our Lord does not reside only in buildings. Jesus lives in the hearts and minds of his people. God goes where believers go, because the people are the church.”
Prayer: Gracious Lord, thank you for living among us. Help us to live so that others may see you in us. Amen.
