April 9: Building

 

Scripture Lesson: 1 Corinthians 3:9-11

 

On this date in 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson joined 47,878 fans for the opening of the Harris County Domed Stadium (Astrodome), which some pundits at the time called the 8th wonder of the world. The Astros won the exhibition game against the New York Yankees, 2-1 in twelve innings. Mickey Mantle hit the first ever indoor home run in the new park.

 

In today’s text, Paul is writing to the Corinthians about building strong Christian lives. The foundation for our Christian life is Jesus Christ. Paul had begun building the Corinthians and their walk with Christ, much as a master carpenter builds a building. We must think of ourselves as Paul describes us, as God’s building. We should be careful to grow as a believer with those who are able to draw us closer to Christ. The building of our Christian lives is a life-long process that is only complete when we go to heaven. We must be growing daily in our faith, for our lives reflect the depth of our faith! If we are not growing, then we are going backwards in our faith.

  1. How is Jesus the foundation of our faith?

  2. How can we grow in our faith daily?

  3. Why is it important to have someone in our lives to help us grow in our faith walk with Christ?

How is the building of our lives going today? With Christ as the foundation and an effort each day to grow, our walk with Christ will be stronger every day.

That doesn't make sense. Freedom begins with the faith that you have fdereom? Tell me, then, if fdereom begins with that leap of faith, then how does one come to have the fdereom to make that leap of faith in the first place?Solving the question by reducing it to a mere state of mind doesn't answer the problem of fdereom in the metaphysical sense that your title implies.
