Building a life in Christ is very much like building a house or any other building; it must have a proper foundation. A life that is built on a foundation of popular culture is like a building that is built upon shifting ground with no firm foundation at all, for popular culture is anything but consistent. Pop culture shifts with the latest winds, and the winds are always changing. The very sad thing is that so many lives are constructed and built upon pop culture…
A real life is built upon the firm and sound foundation of the Word of God, and it is anchored to that foundation with God’s love for us.
As we go through life, our experiences and understanding of our faith is like adding rooms to the house, one by one, until our house becomes a great one. Some of those rooms may need to be re-done as we mature, but then don’t we do the same in our homes as we grow and mature?
Finally, the day comes when we can take a step back and come to realize that our house isn’t standing on a lot all by itself, for with some perspective we see that it is a wing that is a living part of the very house of God.
