1 Corinthians 3:11 (NET)
For no one can lay any foundation other than what is being laid, which is Jesus Christ.
The first time I started handling construction projects as a young civil engineer, one of the things I quickly observed was that a construction project is not better than the skill of the craftsmen responsible. No matter how good an engineer is, if he has poorly skilled workers, his work will not come out very well.
I also observed that among craftsmen, those who are exceptionally good are usually good in certain selected aspects of their trade where they are exceptional.
For example, even though every Mason can do certain basic things like laying blocks, setting concrete, etc. There are certain masons that are particularly good at plastering walls. Even though these masons may also be good in laying blocks and foundation, they are particularly exceptional in plastering walls, and that is the service they have great demand for. I observed that workmen who found their special areas of strength and focused on it were the ones who were always busy because of high demand.
Paul knew that His job in God’s building project was to lay foundations, and this he did and focused on. Remember that he previously explained to the Corinthians that he (and other ministers ministering to them were God’s workers) and they (the Corinthian brethren ministered to) were God’s building (see 1 Cor 3:9).
Paul is now making it clear that there is no other foundation but Christ. That was why he said earlier that he chose to know nothing among them but Christ and Him crucified (see 1 Cor 2:2).
Go into today remembering that the most important part of any building is its foundation. Anyone who does not accept the Lordship of Christ [over his life] is not saved. This is the foundation of every other thing in the kingdom.
Ask the Lord to help you identify and focus on your specialty in God’s building project.
Prayer: ask the Lord to deliver you from distractions and help you always walk in His will.
