The Bedrock

Jesus is the bedrock on which you can build with the right or wrong materials; but there is no negotiation who the bedrock is.
But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames. (1 Corinthians 3:15)

The First Person

The Bible says that not only is Jesus God, as the First Person (the beginner) of reality, He is the First Person of present, ongoing reality, the director and determiner of present reality.

And now in these final days, He has spoken to us through His Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son He created the universe. Hebrews 1:2

The Foundation

The Bible clearly commends the Lord Jesus Christ, God's only Son, as the foundation for an individual's life. The Lord Jesus Christ qualifies as the foundation for human life by virtue of Him being God.

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have--Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11

Comprehensive Foundation

God is the only One who qualifies as a comprehensive foundation--the causative, carrying, and commanding power--for human life.

And human hands can't serve His need
s--for He has no needs. He Himself gives life and breath to everything, and He satisfies every need. Acts 17:25
