Are you the type of person to build or assemble something without the instructions or directions? Has there been a time when that didn’t go so well?
Read Nehemiah chapter 8. What stands out to you in this chapter about the importance of God’s Word?
What are some Bible verses that talk about how important God’s Word is?
Read Matthew 7:24. Why is it important to build your life according to God’s blueprint? What can you do to make sure you are building according to God’s Blueprint?
While the Blueprint is the Bible, the Building is Jesus Christ. The entire Bible points to Jesus. God is not building a kingdom of stones and block. He is building a Kingdom of Christ-followers.
Read Matthew 28:18-19. All authority rests with Jesus Christ. It is His Kingdom we are to build, not our own. How does this statement from Jesus both challenge and encourage you?
Pray - Father, may I build my life upon Your Word and nothing else. May I strive to build the kingdom of your son, Jesus Christ, and not my own.
