Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 18 March 2019

A Firm Foundation

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit” 
(Ephesians 2:20-22).

Today’s Morsel:  The most important thing in any home is its foundation and the chief cornerstone.  If either is not laid currently and with the right materials, you can be sure that there will be troubles with the home at some point.  The comparison of the church with a building is common in the scriptures.  And the doctrines that they taught are the basis on which the church rests.  If a church isn’t built on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ and His apostles, sooner or later it will start to have troubles and fall.  Paul said that we are the temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16).  So what doctrine is your life built upon?  It needs to have the sure foundation and the chief cornerstone, the word of God and Jesus Christ. 

Sing:  Lord prepare me, to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried true.  With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living, sanctuary for You.

Thought For Today: For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11).
