Devotional 27.01.2014

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have–Jesus Christ. [NLT] 1 Corinthians 3:11

…..

Many of us in our various vocations have become successful, and we thank #God for that, because it was His #GRACE that made us so. Now, using God’s grace/mercy/favour over our lives to feed our own self-importance, making idols of ourselves in our very own eyes, is disastrous. Some may say, but I have Jesus as my firm foundation, but using Him as an excuse to build a dreadful building on your once excellent foundation will most-definitely fade/fall away when the trials of life comes if care is not taken. Sometimes we need to take stock checks of our lives, to make sure that what He has given to us has not caused pride (or abominable characters) to become permanent residents in our lives.

As we work through our goals and plans this year, let us try to build our good faith based building on #Jesus Christ, and we will see that He can be trusted to stand the test of time! Indeed I have found Jesus to be a firm foundation in every #challenges of my life, forever #abiding, an #immovable Rock of ages, who never wears off, and Who is more than able to bear the weight of all men. On Him, you can build an edifice, free of pride and envy. On Him, you can be sure of your Salvation, not just for time, but for eternity. #Today let Jesus be your foundation, a foundation built with faith and hope, where adversities of life are overcome, where unobtainable goals are attained, and uncommon successes are evident!
