Dailies ~in His Word

Dailies~in His Word
March 2019
We seasoned Christians need to be sure we are using God’s wisdom to live according to His Word; we build on our faith to build up the ‘house’ of God. In this reference I do not refer to the house as a physical structure that we meet for church but I mean the body of Christ, for we believers, Christians, followers of Christ are the house, or temple of God. In this we realize that His house is not a building but a people. Christ being the foundation we being the many parts. Wood, nails, screws, dry wall… we all work together to support those who come to know Him as Lord and Savior as they to become a part of the structure.

And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:5-8
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.  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.  For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:9-11. 

When we know who we are in Christ and how He can place us I situations to be useful for the furtherance of the kingdom and to support the cause for Christ we can see how important each part in the church is. We all are needed, we all are useful for the furtherance of the Kingdom of God if we just look, seek, and listen to God as He places us.

Today, let’s pray about how to know where we belong. My place of worship has a class that explains some way some ways to find out what your gifts are, but then it also helps you figure out how to best use them for God’s glory a well!  Seek God, ask Him what you are to do today! Then be blessed as you walk forward in it!
Heavenly Father, thank you that You have placed each of us in a body that is both physical and spiritual and allowing us to be a part. Guide our paths and show us what steps to take to become who you created us to be. In Jesus’ name, amen.
