Text: 1 Corinthians 3: 11. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Foundation is the root of an object.
Foundation bears the weight of the substance or activity in quote.
Every creature on earth has a foundation.
When the foundation of a house is good, it’ll carry the building.
Again we must also understand that the foundation of every building depends on the plan and structure to be built on it.
No wise man erects a storey building or a skyscraper on a shallow foundation.
Most houses collapse as a result of a bad foundation.
In this same regard, we must understand that building on any other foundation except that which had been laid (Jesus Christ the son of God), is building to fail.
Jesus is our sure foundation.
He is the propitiation for our sins and the whole world. 1 John 2:2.
Many have tasted and I am one of them, with the same testimony that Jesus is the only one who can carry any kind of load.
In His word He said;
Psalm 55: 22. Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Matthew 11: 28. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
1 Peter 5: 7. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Building on Jesus the solid foundation means building, based on the word of God.
Many believers have built their marriages, their relationships, their businesses on a wrong Foundation, leading to so many divorces, disappointments, relationship and marriage infidelities, business break down and so many other heartbreaking situations we see.
You don’t serve God and build the foundation of your marriage or relationship by watching, imitating and modelling worldly celebrities.
For example, building a marriage or a relationship on Jesus the solid foundation tells us about love, sincerity, and submission.
Ephesians 5: 22. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. 24. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.
There are uncountable benefits of building on Jesus the solid foundation.
1. He holds the marriage, business, relationship, academics, Job, whatever it is, that even in time of challenges, it will never crash.
Matthew 7: 24. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
2. The peace is unlimited.
When you build on Jesus the solid foundation, He feels your life, your home with His peace and love.
Even in the time of plenty or scarcity, you’re always at peace, making beautiful songs of praise to God.
Jesus said in John 14: 27. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
3. Security is guaranteed. There’s no need to fear on a project or activity that is established on Jesus Christ the solid foundation.
The devil has no access to it because it is marked by the cross. Galatians 6:17.
It dwells constantly and permanently under the watch of God.
Psalm 91: 1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm 91: 4. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Isn’t it beautiful to build on Jesus Christ the solid foundation?
It’s also important to note that it is never too late to reconstruct that business, marriage, relationship, activity on Jesus Christ the solid foundation.
I tell you the truth, as you hand over that marriage, crumbling business to God, He will be your strong and sure pillar, your rock and your fortress.
I pray in Jesus Christ name, that as you decide to surrender to God today and retrace your steps according to His word, the last time you counted failure, loss, heartbreak, pain, disappointment, will be the last you’ll ever see in Jesus’name.
God bless you.
