Jesus Talk...

March 3, 2011

I'm currently working through 1 Corinthians and I am LOVING it!!!  It's killing me.  Tonight I'm going to study Chapter 5 but I can't get over Chapter 3 from 2 days ago.  It's just so beautiful and revealing.  

1 Corinthians 3 says:

7 It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. 9 For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.
 10 Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.
 12 Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. 13 But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. 14 If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. 15 But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.
 16 Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you?17 God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

Does that not kill you?  It sure kills me... in the best way possible.  

We are made to GROW in God for His Kingdom but we need others to help us grow.  Reading this made me think of those who are watering ME!  I have to say, I have some pretty awesome "gardeners" around.  I mean, Spiritual Green Thumbs!!!  I truly am blessed for the Godly friends in my life.  They make it so much easier to grow.  

We are God's field... building... temple.  And anyone who try's to destroys His fields... buildings... and temples then they will be destroyed by Him.  If that doesn't make you feel safe then I don't know what will! 

His GRACE is so sweet and I seem to forget that sometimes.  If you haven't read 1 Corinthians you should give it a shot.  It really is amazing... 

Hope everyone had a wonderful day!  Tomorrow is Friday....... FINALLY
