What is "thisplace" for you? How is it connected to the firm foundation?
We have beenblessed with many places of underserved privilege. I think my place first andforemost, as a child of God in the place of salvation in the kingdom of God. Ithink about my place as a father and husband. I also have been brought into aplace of Gospel Ministry and as a pastor, where I have served for 34 years. Ialso have places of being a spiritual father, mentor, media consultant tochurches, and college professor.
What are yourplaces? How well do you stand in those places? Are you strongly connected tothe firm foundation?
The foundationon which we stand was not built by us, but every generation becomes responsibleto keep honor it and keep it strong. There are many foundations such as: Faith, Family, Fathers, Finance,Freedom,
The ApostlePaul wrote in 1 Corinthians 3:9, 9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you areGod’s field, you are God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God which wasgiven to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and anotherbuilds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For noother foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
