Thought of the Day November 9, 2016

"But each one must be careful how he builds upon it, for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely, Jesus Christ." (1 Cor 3:11) Is Jesus truly the foundation of our life? Is he the Lord of our life? Or have we built our life on sand? Is our life in harmony with the will of Jesus for us or in harmony with what we want in our flesh? The psalmist says: "Unless the Lord builds the house, useless is the work." Any area of sin is rotten, molded material; only a life seeking virtue is worthy of the house Jesus wants to build upon his foundation. If David provided the most precious material for the Lord's Temple, what are we providing? Do we not know we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit? If we need to dig up, rip out, renovate and replace defective and rotten material, now is the time to do so before that final, major storm comes, death. A life not rooted in Jesus will not last.
