Build – Who is building your house?

When I looked at the topic for Five Minute Friday, I found that the word was build.  I remembered that I had done a post a while back called What Kind of House are you building which fit right in with the topic for today.  Right away I also thought about the verse that says,

Except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it.  (Psalm127:1)

  • The only way we can build a house is to let the Lord build it.
  • He alone is the master builder.
  • Any other way to build a house is vanity, empty.
Remember the Sunday School song The Wise Man and the Foolish Man?  The wise man built his house on the rock and when the rains came the house stood firm.  The foolish man built on the sand and when the rains came his house fell.
 Build - Who is building your house-

The Rock of course is Jesus

  • He is the solid foundation.
  • Every house needs a foundation and if it isn’t Jesus, then we are building in vain for every good thing we can do to build our house will one day crumble and fall.  It is like building on the sand.
  • When we are saved we begin building our houses on the Lord Jesus,  He takes us out of the miry clay and sets us upon a Rock to stay  Psalms 40:2  He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.  Yes, the firm foundation of Jesus Christ.  And when the storms come instead of crumbling and falling the Lord will hold us up!

Are you building on the Lord?  Is He your firm foundation?  Don’t let your labor be in vain.  For all the labor in the world can never earn you a place in heaven.  You must build on Him alone.
