When we think about Jesus in our homes in 2011, it is critical for us to remember to be surrendered to Him.
In the first few weeks of 2011, we will consider the various rooms of our homes, beginning this week with the foundation. Few people spend a lot of time dwelling on the foundation on which our homes are built, but Jesus is truly the solid rock of our salvation that we must build our lives upon. As God’s people we do not want to neglect this spiritual foundation that is truly immovable. Remember Paul’s words in Col. 2:6-7, when he writes “Therefore, as you received Jesus Christ the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”
As we face Satan’s schemes and assaults in 2011, it is important that we rest on our foundation and cornerstone, the Lord Jesus Christ. Knowing and serving Jesus is truly the source of lasting and true joy. He is the only foundation to everlasting life in a relationship with God. My hope is that as we build on this foundation, Jesus Christ, that 2011 will be a glorious and fruitful year in both our homes and our church.
To God be the glory.
