1 Corinthians 3:10-11 (NKJV) 10 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. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

As followers of Christ, it is imperative that we know the foundation upon which our faith is built; Jesus Christ, God with us.

There is no other foundation worthy of being built upon. In fact, any other foundation is not a foundation at all, but a counterfeit that will ultimately fail and crumble.

We need to be careful that what we are building our relationship with God on is the true foundation, not something full of cracks and other weaknesses.

There is a foolproof way to make sure of this. We compare everything we hear to God’s word.

His word is the measuring stick by which everything else is measured. It is the standard of truth to which everything else is held.

And it’s critical that we be willing to hear truth when it is shown to us, not simply ignore it because it may require us to change something that we are doing or something we had previously believed was truth.

So, we encourage you to check your foundation. Examine it for cracks or other problems. Measure it against the word of God. And be diligent to fix whatever cracks you find with the truth of God’s word.

This is not an endeavor of little importance. It is something that our eternal destiny depends on.

Matthew 7:24-25 (NKJV) 24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
