Foundational Repair

The Incomplete Guide to Foundational Repair – Ep 30

The incomplete guide to foundational repair is based on the idea that Christ is the firm foundation we build upon and that what we are building is an imitation of Christ. In this episode, we tap into the question of whom you follow. Are you putting in the work to discipline your body to follow Christ? And 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul tells us to be imitators of him just as he is an imitator of Christ, which caused me to beg the question, whom am I following in my walk of Christ? Is there anyone that I want to imitate that is following Christ? Also, I ask who is following me. We are all being watched in our daily walk; our kids, friends, and family catch our actions. So do they line up with what Christ tells us to do? Are you disciplining your body the way an athlete disciplines theirs to be a winner? Are you trying to figure out what spiritual disciplines are lacking in your life, like reading the word, praying, solitude, fellowship, memorizing scripture, or journaling? Are you putting in every effort to remain in Christ as he is remaining in you? He is the vine, and we are the branches, and we can do nothing apart from him. But what are you staying in? Are you remaining in sin? Are you remaining in the things of this world or Christ? As believers, if we have the opportunity to discipline our bodies and choose not to, why are we choosing not to? What example does that leave for nonbelievers to see? so this week, we need to examine what it means to pick up our cross and follow Jesus. What does it mean to crucify our flesh and do the will of the Father? We have to do whatever it takes to repair the foundational cracks we have in our building on the solid foundation of Christ!

Imitate me, as I also imitate Christ. Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), 1 Co 11:1.

 In the same way, encourage the young men to be self-controlled 7 in everything. Make yourself an example of good works with integrity and dignity in your teaching. Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), Tt 2:6–7.

4 Remain in me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, neither can you unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me. Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), Jn 15:4–5.

Foundational Crack – Episode 29

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.
