It appears that we each have two houses: One that we build with our knowledge of good and evil, this house must fall. And one that God builds with us, on Him and this house. His house is eternal. As long as you think that you’re the builder of the house you’ll hear God’s Word as condemnation, you’ll try to manipulate the foundation and build a false self. But if you hear God’s Word as a promise, you’ll stand on the foundation and your life will begin to look like God’s “poema,” His workmanship. The foundation is Jesus. Jesus means “God is Salvation.” For too long the church has been built on “We are Salvation.” The Sanctuary is called to stand on the Rock and be built into God’s House.
