Key Scriptures: Nehemiah 2:18, 4:6, 6:3 & 8:1-8; Haggai 1:8; Jeremiah 6:16-17; Psalm 42:1 & John 17.
After Jesus rose from the dead, not only was He given a name that is above every other name but He was given a position of authority as the Head of the Church (the Body of Christ). His sole focus and attention is upon building this body that it (the church) might be presented to Him on that day, a bride without spot or blemish.
The challenge for each and every one of us who profess the name of Jesus is this : Are we building together with him or are we so wrapped up in ourselves that we are focussed on building our own “ceiled houses” and His house lies in ruins?
Let us take with all seriousness the admonition that unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain to build it!
