Taking Care Of God's Building


"For no man can lay a foundation other than the one that is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (1 Cor.3:11).

When I reveal to someone that I am a minister, they inevitably ask this question... "Where's your church?" Of course, they are talking about the building that rests on 2535 Shore Road in Northfield, NJ, so I get it... We will get that physical building thing out of the way pronto... Our building is just that... A physical edifice. It is the building where the church meets, and though we like the building to be neat, clean and presentable, the church itself is the creation of God and made up of His people... Today's verse lets us know that the real church is built upon a very special foundation, that being Jesus Christ... It is a prime job of Christians to allow and promote the flourishing of the church. Why? Because the church's existence is all about taking God's word to the world. If we are to believe God's inspired Word, the church is God's holy temple. It is a temple made up those who want to be followers of Jesus Christ. Lets have a reality check by looking at the apostle Paul's writing to the church at Corinth... "Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple" (1 Cor.3:16-17). God's house is not built on science, theology, human philosophy or politics... "For no man can lay a foundation other than the one that is laid, which is Jesus Christ..." The church is all about what people believe of Jesus... It is all about how people obey His teachings. We will look at God's Holy Temple over the next few days...

Have a great day... Let His light shine through you.... Love mark Phil.4:11
