Gods city has foundations (Part two)
God is building a city, a temple city made up of the redeemed people of God. A city build with living stones in relationship with God one another. This eternal city is built upon the foundation and chief cornerstone stone,Christ Himself and the teachings of the Apostles. It is a city built across all nations and languages.
1 Corinthians 3:10-15 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
1 Peter 2:4-5 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Nehemiah 4:1 But it so happened, when Sanhballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, that he was furious and very indignant, and mocked the Jews.
