"He has a name written on his cloak and on his thigh, 'King of kings and Lord of lords.'" - Revelation 19:16
Talking politics is quite trendy these days, whether it is locally, nationally or internationally. Regardless of which side you are on, this bumper sticker seems to put everything into perspective.
Politics ebb and flow; politicians come and go; political rhetoric calms or excites. But the Truth never wanes.
Jesus Is King: "King of kings and Lord of lords." Let us rejoice. Amen.
"For no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely Jesus Christ." - 1 Corinthians 3:11
Take sand, gravel or crushed stone, mix it with water and cement, and you have concrete. Concrete is strong in compression (it won't bend) but weak in tension (it can crack); therefore, you usually have to reinforce it with steel, carbon, glass or plastic bars or fibers. Now throw in some agents or additives to handle freeze-thaw cycles, temperature swings, and corrosion resistance. Because concrete production is time-sensitive, once the ingredients are mixed, you must put the concrete in place before it hardens.
You can look at your spiritual life as being similar to concrete production.
What are your ingredients? What makes you strong (you won't bend) or weak (you can crack)? What are your reinforcements? What is needed to keep you stable, balanced and grounded?
Unlike concrete, it takes a lifetime before the ingredients are mixed, placed, and hardened to form the basis of your spirituality.
Master Builder, show me the right recipe for creating a strong foundation. Amen.
