Restoring life’s foundation

How can we pursue a well-built, long-lasting house, a life that is well-grounded and well purposed? I point you to the basic action-laying the right foundation, or for many of us, restoring life’s foundation to original design, intent, and quality.
If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. (1 Corinthians 3:14)

Your foundation rock secures your salvation but we must lay a foundation on the rock with the right materials, if your foundation has shifted due to hostile subsoil conditions, we need to undertake some foundation restoration.
Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. (1 Corinthians 3:10)

Eternal Assurance

Jesus’ foundational role in your life is secured by His eternal salvation. It is also possible to be sustained in present existence by that foundation.
God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. (1 John 4:9)

The Most Solid Foundation

God laid a new creation foundation for all people, a stratum wide enough and strong enough to hold everyone who wants to build his of her life on that solid rock foundation.

For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:9)

The New Foundation

The new foundation and provision for rootedness was laid in human time by Jesus. God erected a “tree” as a symbol and instrument to provide the underlying support that our lives require, for by dying on the cross-tree Jesus attacked the root cause of human foundationlessness – sin.

But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When He was hung on the cross, He took upon Himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13)
