BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE FAITH

Isaiah 28:16 So this is what the sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.”

The Scene: Natural stone, uncut by human hands, but God-made.

Seek righteousness:  Hosea 10:12 “Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers righteousness on you.”

Seek wisdom:  Proverbs 3:13-14 Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better return than gold.

Seek truth:  John 14:6  Jesus answered, ” I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Zechariah 8:16-17 “These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; do not plot evil against your neighbor, and do not love to swear falsely.  I hate all this,” declares the Lord.

As Christians we are called to live lives worthy of the calling– live pure lives. By doing so, God’s children become as children of the Light, Jesus.

Ephesians 5:15, 18 Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead be filled with the Spirit.
