To build, or not to build. Phase 2

1 Corinthians 3:9-13 9 For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— 13 each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. (ESV)

I would now like to continue building upon some of the prior principles I underscored and emphasized in my previous post. (more…)

I would like to take a few moments to focus on Paul’s statement, “Let each one take care how he builds…” Paul the Apostle indicates that there are spiritural truths reflected in natural things, such as creation, principles of logic, laws, etc. Let us first consider some of the principles of practice reflected within my own vocation.

The still small voice

I have been meditating on this particular passage of scripture from 1Kings 19:9-14 as of late. Elijah’s great victory over the Prophets of Baal, followed by an intimate encounter with the God who had previously displayed His mighty arm of power, and rightness, against those who had perverted the ways of the Lord in worship.

It seems that worship, and right worship, was always at the forefront of the Lord’s continual working in the lives of His people, doesn’t it? I’m not talking about style and form, I’m speaking of heart and intent. David said, “In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted, but you have given me an open ear .” Psalms 40:6

“An open ear”. Lord give us an open ear! (more…)

Words of wisdom by the “Prince of Preachers”

It’s no secret, I love Charles Spurgeon. His insight into the word of God was profound. When I get confused and troubled by all of the swirling winds of doctrine, practice and fads sweeping through the church today, I often find myself “soaking” in one of his sermons preached over 150 years ago! Then, my soul is re-focused and re-centered on the one who loved me and gave Himself for me! (more…)
