Clear the Foundation

This is the hour when we must clear off the foundation of our faith and remove any trace of doubt. Let all the rubble of religious thinking be moved away. Refuse to stand in the place of wavering in unbelief. Move to the sure foundation. Stand on solid ground. Allow the Lord to rebuild things from this new position of strength, trust and assurance in Him. 

Isaiah 28:16 — But the Lord God says, “See, I am placing a Foundation Stone in Zion—a firm, tested, precious Cornerstone that is safe to build on. He who believes need never run away again.

Luke 6:47-48 — But all those who come and listen and obey me are like a man who builds a house on a strong foundation laid upon the underlying rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against the house, it stands firm, for it is strongly built.

1 Corinthians 3:10-16 — God, in his kindness, has taught me how to be an expert builder. I have laid the foundation and Apollos has built on it. But he who builds on the foundation must be very careful. And no one can ever lay any other real foundation than that one we already have—Jesus Christ. But there are various kinds of materials that can be used to build on that foundation. Some use gold and silver and jewels; and some build with sticks and hay or even straw! There is going to come a time of testing at Christ’s Judgment Day to see what kind of material each builder has used. Everyone’s work will be put through the fire so that all can see whether or not it keeps its value, and what was really accomplished. Then every workman who has built on the foundation with the right materials, and whose work still stands, will get his pay. But if the house he has built burns up, he will have a great loss. He himself will be saved, but like a man escaping through a wall of flames. Don’t you realize that all of you together are the house of God, and that the Spirit of God lives among you in his house?
