“Build for Christ, All Lives Matter”
I can see this theme in the verses I have chosen for this morning’s thought. You may of not be good with your hands, working at construction. But building for Christ is so much more than working a construction life.
When we build for Christ, all lives DO matter.
Please read the following verses.
10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.
11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
13 his 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 man’s work.
4 If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward.
15 If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
18 Do not deceive yourselves. If anyone of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; a
20 and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”b
21 So then, no more boasting about men! All things are yours,
22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephasc or the world or life or death or the present or the future — all are yours,
23 and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.
Do you see the type of building the Holy Spirit addresses in this passage?
It is talking about building our lives to live with Jesus one day. Elsewhere in scripture, we are taught that the Lord Jesus is the builder, we are the building material,
It is my prayer, You all have a blessed day. Amen
