Our Invisible Building

J.R. Miller 90x115by J.R. Miller

"This fellow began to build—and was not able to finish!" Luke 14:30

We are all builders. We may not erect any house or temple on a city street for human eyes to see—but every one of us builds an edifice which God sees!

Life is a building. It rises slowly, day by day, through the years. Every new lesson we learn, lays another block on the edifice which is rising silently within us. Every experience, every touch of another life on ours, every influence that impresses us, every book we read, every conversation we have, every act in our commonest days—adds something to our invisible building.

We Do Not Have To Be Crucified on Pieces of Wood!

"I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy–to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship." Romans 12:1

The godly life is not one of ease, pleasure and self-indulgence.

We are taught to present our bodies, as a living sacrifice unto God. Ancient offerings were brought to the altar, and presented dead. But the Christian sacrifice, instead of being poured out in a bloody oblation, is to be a living sacrifice of service, of love, of devotion.
