It is possible to be a Christian, but build your life poorly. When shoddy materials are used to build physical buildings, people's lives are in danger. When we build our lives with shoddy materials, people's spiritual lives are in danger. Christ is to be our foundation, but Christians often build on "additions" to the foundation to accommodate their preferences, sin, and do things their way. We need the wisdom of the Building Inspector to examine our work, help us tear down poorly built areas, and build with strong material on the foundation of Christ.


Life is messy. Church life is messy. Every church has problems, because every church is made up of people. But God has called His people to come together to live life alongside each other and to encourage and carry each other, even amid difficult and challenging circumstances. The Apostle Paul planted a church in Corinth, Greece, and it very quickly became a church that dealt with many problems. They lacked maturity and wisdom, despite being a very gifted church. 1 Corinthians is a fatherly challenge and guide to them to help them get back on track and grow in the wisdom they need.
