“If anyone’s work which he has built on it (the foundation Jesus Christ)
endures, he will receive a reward”
We are all called to be builders. We are to build personally and corporately. We are to build reverently and attentively in the Body of Christ. We are not to be concerned with temporal things; our building is to be of the eternal. We are to build things that endure and are of such a nature that the fire, shakings and trials of this life can not destroy. Men who labour to build organizations, ministries and a name for themselves will find no lasting honour. It is in the realm of character, fruit that springs from the work of the Holy Spirit, that we find true lasting value. We are to be builders who hear and do the living Word of God. Those who are hearers only build on sand. To build on the rock we must HEAR and DO of His good pleasure. We are to so interact with one another that LOVE compels us to build each other up to the point of functioning and walking in the things of our Father. The Son desires to so have HIS way with us that we are ever at work to bring each of HIS people into the place of perfection, ministry and unity for that is the only purpose for TRUE ministry (Eph. 4:11 – 13).
Any ministry that is interested in the building up of itself has not seen or known the HEART OF THE SON. HE did not come to be ministered unto but to serve and bring others into the things of His (our) Father. It is in touching HIS love that we are moved beyond the selfishness of our own hearts to consider the needs of others. No door can bar one who holds the Love of God in their hearts; no obstacle is too great to hinder one who really desires to hear and do the words of life. Let us discover the TRUE purpose of Life in the day and place in which we live. Let us be builders in a faith that is motivated by love; a building that is the RESULT of HIS HEART, HIS LOVE and HIS WILL in our lives.
“We then, as workers together with him,
beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain”
II CORINTHIANS 6:1
Our working together with HIM is the revelation of HIS grace at work in our lives. HIS grace is freely given to ACCOMPLISH the bringing forth of the LIFE, the NATURE and the REVELATION OF THE SON in the earth. Grace at work in a life requires that it must be revealed in that life.
“Whereof I was made a minister,
according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me
by the effectual working of his power”
