Building Foundation is very important in life. To build strong foundation in life, Jesus must be the foundation. Therefore to built our Spiritual house on the solid rock of Christ, we must have these three attributes:
Be Spiritually F.A.T.
1. Be faithful building godly discipline
1 Tim 4:6-9 exercise yourself towards godliness
We need to be nourished daily by the Word of God for we are God’s temple & Holy Spirit dwells in us.
Feed our inner man
2. Be Available for God’s work
Build ourselves in Christ to be available for God’s work.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Matthew 6:33 Seek first the kingdom of God.
God’s promises : follow Him, provision will follow
3. Be teachable
Humility is the way to being teachable
Build the church strong in Him.
Train up the children in the fear of the Lord
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go which means Chanek in Hebrew : Consecrate them to the Lord
Train the child The way God’s course for the child
Proverbs 19:18 Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death.
May the Lord Build Shekinah Joy strong in Christ. Not man’s work but His work. To Him be the glory ultimately
We are the consecrated temple of God. Therefore exercise ourselves to godliness.
Why build a strong foundation in Christ because…
1 Peter 2:9-12 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.
