The Centrepiece of Everything We Believe
VV.3-4 “… the builder of a house has greater honour than the house itself. For every house is built by someone but God is the builder of everything.”
This is a theme that runs through the Bible as verse 1 of Psalm 127 succinctly reiterates, “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain”. God is the builder of everything and unless we build on his foundation and let Christ rule over our house, our labours will be in vain.
We must put Jesus at the centre of everything. He needs to be the centrepiece of our family and lives. No easy thing, but otherwise we will be just “treading water” and miss the opportunity of living a wonderful and loving partnership with Jesus. Humbly, the Son of God allows us to be his “best” friend.
Heavenly Father, please help me put Jesus at the centre of everything I say and do, so that I may be a follower of Jesus and be a little bit more like Him, day by day. The challenge is that He is the Servant King and I sadly, am the Kingly Servant! Lord please guide and walk with me with your outstretched hand on my road of discipleship. Amen
