Activity, infallibility, practice: Under structure.

According to the remarkable grace of God which was given to me to prepare me for my task, like a skillful builder. I laid a foundation, and now another is building on it. ” 1 Corinthians 3: 10. The apostle was wise master builder; But the grace of God made them such. Spiritual pride is abominable, it is using the greatest favors of God to feed our own  vanity, and make idols of ourselves. But let every man take heed, there may be bad building on a good foundation ( under structure ). Nothing must be laid upon it, but what the foundation ( Jesus Christ ) will bear, and what is of a piece with it – ” … I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem, chosen for great honor, and anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced. ” 1 Peter 2: 6. Let us not dare to join a merely human or a carnal life with a Divine faith, the corruption of sin with the profession of Christianity.

Christ is the firm, abiding and immovable ROCK OF AGES, every way able to bear all the weight that had himself or the sinner can lay upon Him, neither is their Salvation in any other, leave out the doctrine of His atonement, and there is no foundation for our hopes – Isaiah 26: 4 ” Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock. ” – For our rehearsal! God is often called a rock in the Old Testament, implying that he is the way to stability and safety. He is secure place of refuge and a protective stronghold for his people in the midst of the storms of life ( challenges ). Because he is our rock, we can have confidence that we can look to him for strength and reliability. He is worthy of all our trust – and in Him we will never be shaken.

But of those who rest on this foundation. There are two sorts of species: Some hold nothing but the truth, as it is in Jesus Christ, and preach nothing else – “…If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let the person be cursed.” Galatians 1: 9. Others build on the good foundation what will not abide the test, when the day of trial comes.
