Standing on …

                                 …a sure foundation!
life

A building is sure because of its foundation,
… that is what holds it up
and is what holds it secure!
      The foundation on which we stand,
      … that holds us up and secure, is
      the love of the Father and His commandments.

A building is strong and safe because of its structure,
… that holds it together,
and thus able to perform its function!
      The Holy Spirit keeps us safe and strong
      according to the working of God’s mighty power
      …which He worked in Christ – (Eph.1 19)
      … and in which we stand.

A building’s splendor is in what you see
… its facade, its covering that shows you what it is,
that attracts you to it and that invites you in!
      The Lord Jesus is our splendor
      … if we allow Him and His love to envelop us
      so that the world will see
      … a sure, strong glorious ‘church’
      in Me – and – on Me!

How awesome are Your works!
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
All the earth shall worship You
and sing praises to You;

They shall sing praises to Your name.
Psalm 66 3-4
