1 Corinthians 3:12-13 (NET) If anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, each builder’s work will be plainly seen, for the Day will make it clear, because it will be revealed by fire. And the fire will test what kind of work each has done.
Samuel was discouraged because even though he had a burning desire to serve God, he did not believe he had received any grace to serve God from the pulpit. He tried, but he realized that he did not have the grace to serve in that way. It took him time to realize that even though he did not have a pulpit, he had a platform, and his platform was as important to God as a pulpit.
Daniel (in the Bible) never had a pulpit, but he fulfilled God’s assignment for his life through a secular platform. He could do this because he understood that even though he was in the world, he was not of the world.
Whatever it is you are doing as a believer, you are building something and you will give an account for it before the Lord on that day.
How do we build on the foundation? We build on the foundation by ministering to people according to the grace that has been given to us (see Rom 12:6-9). As believers, we have gifts that differ according to the grace that has been given to us (see Rom 12:6). The way we serve with these gifts determines what we are building with.
Go into today remembering that whether you know it or not, your life is building something that will be tried on that day.
Prayer: ask the Lord to help you live a life that pleases Him in all respects.
