When we were in the world the foundation of our lives were full of cracks and the building was constructed on a crooked foundation, but by receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour the building was saved. Our foundation was replaced with the solid foundation of God’s Word. No cracks.
In building a house, there is a very strict criteria that needs to be followed. The foundation needs to be reinforced to strengthen the building. The foundation is forever, so it’s important to pay attention to the details to ensure it remains without cracks and free from outside interference. The same applies to the foundation of God’s Word – a strict criteria needs to be followed to walk in God’s authority and to overflow with His Holy Spirit. The solid foundation of God’s Word stands firm, His approval is on it, and it holds the body of Christ (the church) and the congregation firmly in Him.
Receiving our salvation and the solid Word of God requires of us to discern, to be alert and to walk in righteousness. Righteousness is to be in right standing with God. When our foundation of God’s Word is solid, we will not be mislead by every doctrine that comes our way. We will be rooted and grounded in His Word. No matter what we are facing, He is our foundation. Ephesians 3:17 declares: “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love.” The level of your Word knowledge will determine the strength of your foundation, and the level of our understanding will determine the flow of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer: Dear Lord, may your Word and the understanding of your Word become rooted and grounded in our lives, let us walk in Your righteousness so that the light of Jesus Christ can be seen by many for Your glory. Amen
