At the same time came to them Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shetharboznai, and their companions, and said thus unto them, Who hath commanded you to build this house, and to make up this wall? (Ezra 5:3)
If someone were to ask you why you go to church, what would you tell them?
If they were to ask you why you act the way that you do, what would you tell them?
One of the things we must do as believers in Christ, is to build our lives based on the Word of God.
Satan had almost destroyed the majority of us before Christ delivered us from his grip and
he will continue
to try to destroy us.
This is why we must fortify our lives based on God’s word
becausethat is the only thing that will stand against
Satan'sattacks. Paul tells us to put on the whole armor of God so that we can stand (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Peter tells us to add to our faith so that we do not fall (2 Peter 1:5-11). Two simple passages
tell ushow and why we must build.
So are you
and fortifythe wall? Who told you to do it?
Sing: I’m standing on the Rock of Ages, safe from all the storm that rages, rich but not from Satan’s wages, I’m standing on the solid Rock.
A straggly look is
a sign that your fortification is weak andyou need to rebuild.
