Considering yesterdays thoughts about building your house on the Lord Jesus Christ, and making God the center of your home let's look at how I am to be constructed. There are many influences in my life, good & bad. I can choose to adapt the mentality of the "world" or I can choose to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.As an important person in my home, in my church and in my community, I am going to weather many storms. If I am not built on a solid foundation, there could be fire or stress fractures that will eventually destroy me.
Remember you are God's Temple, the Holy Spirit LIVES in you!
For instructions in building, use the perfect blue print, God's Word!
1 Corinthians 3:10-17
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. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 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. if what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are the temple.
