Standing on Christ the foundation | August 13

 

“Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: ‘The Lord knows those who are His,’ and, ‘Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.’”

2 Timothy 2:19  NKJV


The Work of God stands on a solid foundation: Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11 , Ephesians 2:20) Those who are His, stand on this foundation and are able to experience Him. How wonderful to realize that the Lord intimately knows and also stands by them. However, He expects that those who stand on His foundation take great pains to avoid everything which is not in compliance with His will.

In the Bible we can see an example of how tragic it is when God’s own leave the shelter of following His will. When Moses was leading the Israelites, a man named Korah and a large band of followers decided to rebel against Moses, doubting that the Lord was really leading through Him. They were filled with lack of faith and trust in the Lord, lovelessness and boundless egoism. God told Moses to advise the rest of the people to remove themselves from Korah’s band, and with good reason, for all those associated with them were destroyed. (Numbers 16)

Let us also choose to remove ourselves from ungodly influences and attitudes and fully live in the benefit of standing on Christ the foundation and being intimately known by Him.

What am I allowing to influence my life and my thinking? Can I feel the confidence I gain from standing on Christ as my foundation?
