God's Building

Pastor Rasmusson's sermon was based on I Corinthians 3: 9-23.

The church is the people of God. Must be built on the right foundation: Jesus Christ.

We need to be careful when we build. The materials with which we build will be tried by fire. (v. 12) This is the true test of durability.

Proverbs 2 If you receive my words, if you cry out for discernment, you will understand the fear of the Lord. Which is to say, we learn how to live through the study of the Word of God.

Matthew 6 Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.
That is, God will provide if we but seek His righteousness.

Pastor stated that he is amazed at the ignorance of many "church" people concerning their knowledge of God's word.

We need to be people of the Book. To build according to plan, we must read the plan!

The wisdom of the world is foolishness to God. (v.19)
One of the characteristics of godliness is humility. We must be given to sacrifice and service.

We need to build with the right motive, that is to further the Kingdom of God.
"You are Christ's and Christ is God's." (vv. 21-23)

Build to God's glory and honor.
The better we know Him, the easier it is to trust, obey and serve.

So walk that your rewards will stand the test of fire!
