Introduction

As I begin this new series “Foundation For Living With Jesus” I am reminded of my spiritual journey of over 67 years which has been so good and as I have looked more closely I have realised that my life has been built on a strong foundation – Jesus Christ. I am amazed that my spiritual journey has been so long and today I am still so passionate about the Lord right now I find living with Jesus so fulfilling and pleasurable. As I commence there is one unshakeable fact that needs to be talked about and that is the foundation of my life. Nothing of worth can be built to last if it does not have a good foundation. This applies equally to a small cottage or a high rise building, so if this applies in the natural it certainly applies to our spiritual life. The need of having the right foundation is so evident in the current church climate since the pandemic. I was recently talking with my senior Pastor and he told me that he had been in contact with other Pastors all around the world and have been told of a loss of 40% of their congregations – life got too hard so they gave up, from this it is so obvious that they did not have a strong foundation in their lives. It is so important to look at what the Bible teaches about foundations and apply it to the way that we live. 1 Corinthians 3:11 says: “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ”. Jesus taught His disciples in Matthew 7 and Luke 6 that obeying the word of God builds a strong foundation on which to build. There is something that needs to be highlighted many people start right by being born – again so they start with the right foundation but they never build on that foundation a strong relationship with the Lord. 1 Peter 2:7 says: “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby”. 2 Peter 3:18a says: “But grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ”. Remember if we do not grow we die, Matthew 10:22b says: “But he who endures to the end shall be saved”. Jesus told the parable of the five foolish virgins in Matthew 25 who let their lamps go out and did not attend the wedding. Paul challenged the church at Galatia in Galatians 3:1a &3 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth. Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect in the flesh”. God wants to say to us at the end of our life with “Well done good and faithful servant; enter into the joy of the Lord” (Matthew 25: 21&23). I have called my Christian life living with Jesus and that is how it has been – I take Jesus with me everywhere I go. In the ongoing blogs, I intend to cover the following foundations, Salvation, Water Baptism, Communion, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, God’s word, Prayer, Worship, Right Living, Witnessing, Healing Faith, Giving Serving Second coming of Jesus. I desire that every person who reads these blogs will fall in love with Jesus and live passionately with Him on a strong foundation.
