Our home buying process has been driving me batty. Any day now, an inspector will come in and examine important things in the house to make sure it is safe for my family and I to live in. As most of you know, if the foundation is bad, the whole house suffers it will be checked for cracks, and for shifting and sinking. This is the most important part of any home, the foundation must be solid and secure, and be able to hold up to any pressure that the elements may throw at it.
This concept is so true when applied to our Christian foundations. In my daily Bible reading, I came across a verse in Psalms that has been ringing in my heart now for days, it states, “If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” (Psalms 11:3) This verse made me realize yet again, how important it is to keep Christ, the chief cornerstone, alive and active in our lives. If we do not have that foundation built on Christ, we crumble under the weight of the world, and ultimately, we fail and loose that precious security of being righteous in the sight of God.
To keep Christ as our cornerstone we must immerse ourselves daily in his truths and in prayer to the Father. Our foundation is the word, which is Christ, and if we continue to seek truths and answers in the word, our foundation will remain solid and others around us will be able to stand on the firm foundation we have built through our love for Christ. I pray that we all continue to take care of this fundamental part in our faith, the foundation on which our hope is built upon.
