Foundational Crack. We know that Jesus is the firm foundation we all need to build our lives on. But are we actually doing it? Or do we build a life on a counterfeit foundation? A foundation that does not lead to anything worthwhile in the vision you have for your family. Do you even have a vision for yourself, your family, your co-workers, or anyone around you? Does it have that person looking more like Jesus today than yesterday? How are you striving to reach that vision? Your actions will only allow you to live inside your belief system. So does your belief system say about your foundation? Does the Holy Spirit and your community work to keep your foundation from cracking? Or do you have a foundational crack? Is the weight of everyday life on your counterfeit foundation making you crumble? Can you even see what is good in your life to build on? Or are your eyes closed while your sleepwalking through your spiritual life? We need to wake up and be the church! We need to live our life as Christ’s followers if we claim Christ is the Lord of our life. If Christ is our Lord, we must live out a life that reflects our foundation built on Him. Put in the work to dig out what is in the way. Allow Christ to change your heart and mind.

12 “There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. 14 He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me.
