JESUS CHRIST IS A FIRM FOUNDATION!
"According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master-builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let man take heed how he builds thereon. For another foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." 1Corinthians 3:10
IN JESUS TODAY!
Along with other industries, the construction industry has recently been afflicted with economic woes. I believe that many of these such afflictions are due to the laying of another foundation other than Jesus Christ. Many have lifted up by the roots the previous foundations that were laid, such as prayer, and the reading of the Bible, and have replaced these with a foundation that is beginning to crumble. That replacement foundation of gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, and stubble may look nice and seem secure, but they are not a firm foundation, as we have all recently discovered through the collapse of many markets and industries.
THE FOUNDATION IS FIRM WHEN…
Only through Jesus is a firm foundation laid. I speak heavily to many industries, because they understand the importance of having laid the right foundation. For those of you who still insist upon unearthing the foundation of Jesus Christ in this country or any other, I remind you of the cost! All other ground is sinking sand! If you are not building a foundation on Jesus Christ it will collapse!
"Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is." 1Corinthians 3:13
Now as a suggestion, I recommend that instead of moaning about such collapse, repent and replace, where the foundations of Jesus Christ have been removed, put them back! Bring Jesus back into your building plans!
ALLOW JESUS IN YOUR HEART!
