Arrow Choosing the Right Building Material

Choosing the Right Building Material
1 Corinthians 3:12-15
Believers build their lives on the Rock of Ages: Jesus Christ. Every motive, every deed, and every word is material for our spiritual house. The apostle Paul warned followers to construct with care because on the day of judgment, fire will test the quality of each personís work. This refers not to a literal fire but to the purifying presence of Jesus Christ.
When I stand in the Saviorís perfectly holy and just presence, all the wood, hay, and stubble in my life will disappear. Good things done with wrong motives will vanish along with secret sins and bad attitudes. Only what has been done and said in Jesusí name remains. And the moment the chaff is gone, we will see that God is rightóthose things didnít fit the life of His child.
On hearing this explanation, someone usually says, ďAll that matters is that I get into heaven.Ē But that attitude is shortsighted because the judgment of believers is about rewards. In the parable of the unrighteous steward, Jesus explained the basic concept to His disciples: ďHe who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in muchĒ (Luke 16:10). Our time on earth is the beginning of an eternity serving and rejoicing in the Lord. God will reward us with heavenly responsibility according to our faithfulness here.
Wise people plan for the future (Prov. 27:12).I want to receive as much of Godís goodness as He offers, so I am determined to build with top-quality, enduring materials. The privilege of serving is only the beginning of the rewards. In heaven, Godís generosity will be even more abundantly unleashed.
