Understanding The Foundation

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Corinthians 3:10-11(KJV); According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Christ is the foundation of the Church.

As the edifice of the Church rises, it ought to reflect Christ in character, form and substance.

This begs the question, does the body of Christ today do so?

Sadly, not as much as it ought.

The problem is foundational. If we have not understood the foundation, the building cannot be ‘true.’

One of the outstanding foundational problems is the fact that some have made NEED the building material: the need for wealth, need for healing, need for divine intervention in marriages and families, need for career growth, need for deliverance from addictions and so forth.

Some people even feel like a man of God has not preached a proper sermon until he mentions their problem and how God is getting them out of it.

Need is the skill for crafting the perfect sermon; need is even in the call to give for the cause of Christ, ‘For your gift of thirty dollars, you will receive a thirty fold miracle!’

Child of God, the thing about need is that by its nature, it is perpetual.

However, all these needs grow dim when we turn our eyes upon Jesus.

It is time for the church to rise above the limitations of need to the limitlessness of the person of Christ. It is time for need to leave our pulpits; it is time for the voice of need to cease from how we manipulate people to give.

Christ is deeper than any need.

His name be praised!

Christ is deeper than any need.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this day. I am grateful for this great and wonderful Word. I choose to set my eyes on things above where Christ is seated, to drink from the wells of your bottomless depths, to drown in the revelation of who you are. That is life, for it is eternal life to know you. This day, I take the decision to look past need but to the person of who you are. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
