I ran across 1 Corinthians 3:11 today while I was working on my message for Sunday. It says, "For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ." This immediately pulled me back to the story Jesus told about the wise and foolish builders. (Mtt 7 and Lk 6) In the story a "foolish" man tried building his house on the sand. The winds raged, the rain poured, the water poured over the banks and the house was destroyed. The wise man built his house upon "the rock." And when the winds raged, and the rain poured, and the water poured over the banks he was high and dry. And his house remained.
What is the rock? It has to be the one and only Son of God, Jesus Christ.
What are we building our lives upon? Worldly things, fleeting things, temporary things? Or do we choose to have Christ as our foundation and work for eternal things, spiritual things, lasting things?
