“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
(Matthew 7:24 NIV)
What are you building on?
What are you building with?
Your dreams, desires or purposes?
He is the master builder.
He is building His people.
And He knows best way to build.
Somewhere where it will last eternity.
He doesn’t have a short term vision.
Neither is it a long term vision.
He takes an eternal view.
You are always building something.
It is in your DNA.
Whether it is the family around you.
Even a real house.
All is done with the future in mind.
He wants you as part of His building.
To build with Him.
His worldwide church for a world that is short on love.
He doesn’t do small.
He doesn’t do denominations or streams.
He doesn’t even do church buildings.
He does people.
He loves people.
Even the ones you find irritating and annoying.
How do you respond to Him?
Do you listen to what He is saying to you?
Do you lean in?
Press in to hear every syllable above the clamour of our noisy lives.
At times He will but whisper.
At other times He will turn the tables over.
His house is a house of prayer.
You are now that temple.
Don’t turn it into a money pit.
