MATTHEW 7:18_A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit…
Jesus builds a foundation first and then brings in the necessary tools needed to build upon it – His Creation Principles.
Jesus warned us to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. He taught to recognize deception by the fruit it produces. He taught fruit always reflects its source. Jesus’ principles are sturdy and durable. They’ll stand against the storms of life. They’ll stand throughout the ages. I Peter 2:6 (KJV) , “Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him [Jesus] shall not be confounded.”
The apostle Paul used this same idea in I Corinthians 3:9-11 (KJV), “For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye [Christians] are God’s building.10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I [Paul] have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
Paul’s teachings are built upon a foundation. That foundation is Jesus.
We are God’s building, studying Jesus’ direct teaching.
Lord Jesus, Thank you that I am Your building. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ builds on principles—I will live in that house!
