Back in early August, my lead pastor and colleague gave a message titled “Who am I?” – it was excellent.
He went on to say that the Bible is not silent on this question and how we need to recognize the importance of God’s evaluation of us.
Our foundation is built and strengthened when we spend time getting to know God and understanding what we believe about God and ourselves. If we don’t start there, we will grow a faulty foundation.
If we grow on a faulty foundation, whatever is built is defective.
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.” When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority—quite unlike their teachers of religious law.” (Matthew 7:24–29, NLT)
Be a wise builder,
