“Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:7
AS MEN OF HONOR!
There is a popular slogan amongst the truck building business and it reads as follows, “Built Ford Tough!” Now the message that it sends tells its potential buyers that this truck is tough, made solid, and built to last. Please understand that I am not advocating for any one company over another, but rather I am reflecting on this particular message in order to ask you some questions,
“Are you built tough?” “And what or who is it that tells you that you are?” And why does any of this matter?”
Here Paul seems to agree that how we are built and who we are built by matters a lot! How and by whom we are built matters! Jesus is a firm foundation and a Master Builder upon whom we can trust! He will support us and strengthen us so that we are built to last, as we read,
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on a 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 his house on sand. When the rains and the floods come and the winds beat that house it will collapse with a mighty crash.” Mathew 7:24-27
OUR SLOGAN IS... "BUILT JESUS TOUGH!"
