We often hear about people having water in their crawl spaces or cracks in their foundations and you know if they tell you that, you have a big problem that needs to be fixed. Often we will recognize it in our homes but not in our personal life.
Our spiritual foundation may have developed cracks or when we were growing spiritually we cut some corners and now we have a problem. Paul thought it was important to remember who laid your foundation. Jesus recognized the Temple in Jerusalem but he also referred to his body as a temple. The spiritual foundation of our lives can only be Jesus Christ. Check your spiritual foundation, is it built on the finished redemptive work of Jesus or is there something else you have added like your church or your parents faith. Each of us have an individual foundation and it must be on Jesus. Paul reminds us “Do you know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? …for the temple of God, which you are is holy.” God thinks this process is so important that he has told us we are holy.
Do a spiritual foundation check today. Are there cracks in your foundation? Stop and do the repairs. No one wants to see their life crumble from decay that could have been fixed. Run back to Jesus and correct your foundation.
