How you build counts!


Acts 1:33 “To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.”

Reminder:Click AUGUST 28, FRIDAY NIGHT PRAYER for registration, dont miss this opportunity!

Jesus had already talked to His disciples in parables and in lot of other ways for three and half years about the kingdom of God but now again after resurrection, He stayed back for 40 days not to tell them how to make money, how to buy properties, how to become rich but He was speaking concerning the kingdom of God.  Just understand how important it is for us to know that we need to invest our lives in a proper manner so that we become worthy to enter the Kingdom of God.  For some this message may sound bizarre and surreal; however, it is my duty to preach to you’ll that which pertains to God and His principles.


Let me show you a scripture today and explain it to you: For no one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:12If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, 13his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work.… 14        If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward.” Friend, this scripture is enough and it has preached all by itself; however, I would like to warn you to live your life carefully, separate time for Bible study and prayer.  Sometimes men tell me, “my wife attends your meeting, my wife reads your devotion, my wife hears your sermons, my wife follows you on facebook”, well gentlemen, why not you??? Are you so busy that you have no time to read the sermons written by a woman? Remember, it is the Holy Spirit writing and preaching to you!


Illustration: Christopher was working for a highly, successful and famous building contractor and he also during the course of his work with his boss, he became efficient, highly experienced and also made a lot of money. One fine day, Christopher felt that he wanted to do business on his own, so he approached his boss and conveyed his desire, he expected his boss to explode but his boss coolly told him, ‘fine Christopher, you may leave but first build me a house for myself before you go”. Christopher thought, ‘this man has huge properties, why does he want me to now build a house for him”, he agreed reluctantly, though.  He grudgingly builds the house with low quality, does a shabby job and finishes the house speedily. When he approached the boss to relieve him, the boss said, “ fine Christopher, you have faithfully worked for me all these years, so I gift this house for you!”  Christopher stood shocked!  1 Corinthians 3:10”But each man must be careful how he builds..”
