What is YOUR Foundation?

Standing on the promises while sitting on the premises, or standing on the sure foundation of Christ?

"According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 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. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire." (1 Corinthians 3:10-15 KJV) All Christians are God's workers, or should be. Nobody is left out and all are needed. Christians are servants for the Lord. They are to work together in unity without jealousy and quarreling. Christians need to remember that it is not them that is doing God's word, but it is God working in and through them enabling them to be good workers and servants. The Holy Spirit lives in every believer and He teaches and leads us. But just think about it…to be indwelled by the Holy Spirit is to live in the presence of God and to have God living in us. What a wonderful gift! A building is only as solid as its foundation and when we have Jesus as our foundation we have a solid foundation and a reason for being. Work that has been done on the foundation of Jesus will endure but work done in pride and for our own glory will be burned up. We are to humble ourselves and be holy so we can do good work for God. "Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy." (1 Peter 1:13-16 KJV) We are to be mentally alert, disciplined and focused. To be holy as God is holy…holy in everything we do. Holiness means being totally devoted or dedicated to God, set aside for His special use and set apart from sin and its influence. We are to be set apart and different, not blending in with the crowd, yet not being different just for the sake of being different. What makes us different are God's characteristics in our lives. Our focus and priorities must be His. We cannot become holy on our own. The Holy Spirit will help us obey and will give us power to overcome sin when we yield to Him. "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue." (2 Peter 1:3 KJV) Are you living on the solid foundation?
