Unlimited: Who is Building Your Life?

Sep 19, 2019 1460

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain (Psalm 127:1).

At the end of the Sermon on the Mount we read, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell and great was its fall” (Matthew 7:24-28 NRSV).

Everyone must build. We are all building character. Every thought builds character, every word builds character, every desire cherished builds character. Every conscious moment, I am building the edifice of character.

Everyone must build. That’s the first thing.

The second thing is that every building will be tested. The storms won’t pass us by, leaving us alone. Lightning will strike every one of us. The edifice of character will be tested by trial, troubles, affliction, false accusation, and bewilderment.

Every edifice of character will be tested, and unless character is built on Christ, it will go down.

– Des Ford (adapted)

Eli’s Reflection: What are you building your character on today? Who do you look to when trials and testing come? Submit your life and character to God. Allow Him to build the house of your life. What are your next steps?

I'm new in faith in Jesus Christ so I realized that my former life was not the life that Jesus want me to live and he has a masterplan to my life to reflect his light to the world so I submit my life totally to Jesus and I implore him every day to guide me and I feel that I'm changing from the inside and my life is transforming to a better and orderly life so I'm glad about the improvement that Jesus is doing in my life and I'm very thankful.
