God’s Word for Today: Demolition.
My current construction project is starting out with some major demolition. To build a new addition to an existing school, the first order of business is to remove an old building and everything associated with that old part of the school.
I have been involved in demolitions before, and it is always amazing the underlying and hidden “treasures” that are uncovered. I have yet to find that allusive chest filled with gold, but for keeping things positive, we will use the “treasure” reference.
We always seem to find, during demolition, some sort of waste disposal system that had been buried and conveniently forgotten about. In this case, it is a huge septic tank and accompanying leach field otherwise known as a sewer system. This discovery will take extra man hours and dollars to remove. Once removed, we can then build a good base for the foundation of our new building. Old sewer system not good. Solid foundation, good.
2Corinthians 5:17. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
We are close to the date where God started His own Demolition work. He doesn’t care what “treasures” you have hidden. He has no concerns about your buried past. God wanted to enable you to have a clear and stable site to rebuild your life. Footings, foundation, slab on grade, building, roof, the whole works. God even sent a Carpenter to help you with your new build.
You may believe that your past contains too many things that will keep you from building a new and strong life. Demolish those thoughts. Know that God, through the birth of Jesus Christ, made it possible to demolish all the old, and build that new life you need starting with a solid foundation in Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen………………..
