We need to look into the mirror and asked what have I BUILT? Does it glorifying myself or is my BUILDING (life) bring glory to God? Challenges often are there to help us to look and to refocus on the Master Builder Jesus Christ. Jesus will take all that we are and if we put it all into His hands, He will transform us into a unique temple that He desires to fill with His Holy Spirit. Today is the day to rise in Christ and together let’s BUILD!
We are all BUILDING something whether it is physically, emotionally and spiritual and Jesus through the Gospel caution people to “hear and do” what He teaches. He exhorts us that if we do, He has promised us that we will be like a wise BUILDER whose house is established on Him as the true “Rock foundation”. Question? How and what are we BUILDING today and for the future?
Something is being built in all our lives either by ourselves or by others. The questions need to be asked, what kind of a foundation are we building on and secondly have we given our lives over to the Chief Master BUILDER who has a wonderful blueprint (Bible), that is unique and special, for who we can be in Christ Jesus and for His Kingdom. Today, make a decision to put your life into the hands of the Chief Master BUILDER! Amen!
God is not trying to build our kingdom; He desires that we come together with Him and BUILD His Kingdom and eternal place which He is asking us to become a part of forever. What God desire more than anything is to BUILD us into such a person, that we glorify His Name and His Kingdom together.
Let us not focus on the destruction or captivity we may find ourselves in, but to be like Ezra (a teacher), Nehemiah (a cup bearer), David (a shepherd) and Solomon (a king) and respond to our Lord Jesus Christ and say, “ let us rise up and BUILD” (Neh 2:17-20). Do not focus on the despair and destruction around us, focus on the Lord who desires in His heart to BUILD and REBUILD our lives.
We are challenged by life to keep building, but this needs to be done in all areas of one’s life (Physically, Emotional & Spiritually). To be a builder we need wisdom and understanding when comes to building or rebuilding our lives. Discipleship is a process of building our lives into the likeness of Christ and His Kingdom. Even if things look desolate or like waste land or destroyed, it is never to late to BUILD. I want to prophecy that in the midst of chaos that we see, the discouragement and destruction that is all around us, this is the day to “rise up and BUILD”. Jesus is our Master BUILDER. Amen!
The discipleship life is one of a journey for the sake of the Gospel. We are travelling and moving forward on behalf of our King and His Kingdom, fulfilling His plan and will for our life. We are just passing through this world, but while here we represent Him, but our true home is heaven, this is our finally journey stopping point. The disciples’ journey does not end but it does transition from an earthly journey to a heaven journey that last for all eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Disciples – we are under a binding covenant with Jesus Christ. Communion reminds us of our commitment to this New Covenant we have made together with Him. Remember a covenant has binding conditions to them that both parties must follow. God is the issuer of the covenant contract – He is the keeper of the covenant – God sent His Son as the Mediator of a new covenant – the Holy Spirit is the seal that the covenant has been agreed upon.
It is so important that the Disciples of Christ get involved. Stop watching and start participating! Hebrews 12:1-2. Check out this 4 1/2 minute video
