As I read what the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 3, I could easily think he is talking about today. We have so much division in the church (and our society). Difficult times often reveal underlying issues. I wonder if we live as though Christ is our foundation. Or do we try to add to the foundation Christ has laid with our own wood, hay, and stubble?
Friends, we would weather storms better if we remembered that Christ lays a perfect foundation. If we tune ourselves to Christ, we will find His foundation to be much more stable than ours. I hope this is what you want to do. Times are tough. We are all struggling with many different hardships. We need to remind each other to cling to Christ. He is the only way to walk through good times and bad.
My hope with this blog is to encourage others as I walk (sometimes tripping) down the path God has set me on. I need much of the encouragement that I share. Sometimes I write about things my friends are going through. We all need the help the Bible and prayer give. I hope you will come along for the ride and share what God is teaching you as well.
Dear Heavenly Father, there is so much hurt, fear and anger in our world right now. We have division every where we look. Please help us to cling to Christ and show one another how much You love us. Thank You that You have a plan and You are trustworthy.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
