Building on Grace (1 Corinthians 3:10)

Today’s scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:10

Fifteen years ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to watch our then-home be built from the ground up. It was fun watching it grow from a bare plot of land to a foundation. Then framing. Then a roof. Then doors and windows.

And finally … a completed house.

We too can lay foundations of faith—or build on foundations others have laid. By His grace, God has given each of us gifts and talents to be representatives of Him and to share the good news of salvation.

Some are pastors and teachers, and many learn of salvation through their teaching. Others are encouragers or have the gift of hospitality, and they represent Jesus in the flesh. Still others are prayer warriors who lift up many who have needs.

Each of us who follows Christ have a part in building His church.

Are you doing your part?
