GODLY STANDARD

TEXT:1 CORINTHIANS 3:5-15

KEY VERSE:"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (1 CORINTHIANS 3:11).

Incidences of building collapse in some societies have been blamed on the unwillingness of building contractors to adhere to standards. In some of the cases, it was observed that the builders violated principles of solid structures as they continued to raise the buildings to a point where the foundation could no longer cope. As building according to standards is vital in the physical, so it is in the spiritual.
God has standards and honours those who abide by it. When Prophet Elijah proved God's supremacy over Baal on Mount Carmel, he evidently showed that the sure foundation which had been laid for the true worship of God, should not be corrupted.
Elijah also proved that there was a foundation that must be built upon for success to be achieved in ministry. For God to send the fire of acceptance upon his sacrifice, the prophet had to follow the standard. In the same manner, believers and ministers of the gospel must build on the sure foundation laid by Christ. To do so, we must first of all identify with Him. Then we must build according to pattern.
We can only do exploits through the name of Jesus; anything to the contrary would amount to working at variance with the Master-builder. In building, we must endeavour to choose "durable" stones of gold, silver and precious stones, instead of hay and stubble. Those who build contrary to the foundation laid by Christ will suffer loss.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:Do not build collapsible spiritual structures.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:1 KINGS 5-7
