Do you exist to serve God’s house or does He exist to serve your house?
Many today who proclaim Christ do so seeking their own houses. They seek the growth and betterment of their own churches, their own ministries, their own families, their own lives. And often they seek all these things in material terms: more people and money for their churches and ministries, more material goods for their families and their lives.
If you would seek the good of God’s house you must seek spiritual blessings and you must seek for them to accrue to others. Material things are indeed necessary for this life but are always to be kept in a place of lesser importance than spiritual things.
What makes this issue all the more confusing for many people is that what they perceive as God’s house is, in actuality, their own house. Thus they think of their church as God’s church, their ministry as God’s ministry. They are blind. They cannot see God’s house and God’s ministry. God’s house is humanity. His ministry is that which edifies human beings. I am speaking of the entirety of the human race – that which only God can be over.
So I ask again: Are you seeking God’s blessing on your house or are you seeking to be a blessing to God’s house?
Here is good news: If you seek to be a blessing to God’s house, He will take care of your house.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
