Keep Building

By Greg Laurie







“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

—1 Corinthians 3:11




If you have a home, you have to do repairs periodically. I’m not allowed to repair anything in my home, because I’m the opposite of Mr. Fix It. I’m Mr. Make It Worse. So, if something has broken and I go to the hardware store, it will end up worse than it was to start with.


Repairs are necessary for a home, because things happen. Maybe it needs new paint, you have to reroof, or your air conditioning unit breaks down. You’re usually in the process of repairing, refurbishing, and sometimes redecorating a home. You’re in the process of constantly maintaining it.


In 1 Corinthians the apostle Paul wrote, “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it” (3:10 NKJV).


The word that Paul used for “build” speaks of a continuous action. The idea is that we should constantly build. Paul also said, “For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. . . . For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (3:9, 11 NKJV).


This is the foundation you should build your marriage on. This is the foundation you should build your career and your ministry on. In fact, this is the foundation you should build everything on.


God gives us the blueprint, which is the Word of God. He gives us a foundation, which is a relationship with Him. He also gives us the resources to build with, which is the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


We build our lives on the foundation of Jesus Christ, but we also want to keep building ourselves up spiritually.

GOD is sitting on HIS THRONE
TEARS are streaming down HIS Face
FOR Lack of knowledge MY PEOPLE shall die
HOW come you Believers are so shy?

The LORD has spoken only when your heart is broken
with pain as deep as an Ocean so that HE can fill it
