Build Castles in the Air



"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."  Henry David Thoreau

What better foundation than God's word? 

I had just read this quote before heading off to church. Jeremy, our pastor taught us about the letter Paul wrote to the Phillipians. Although the book (his letter) is only four chapters long it contains nine references to the gospel; more than any other book in the Bible. Paul was incarcerated when he wrote this letter. He didn't know if he would ever be released, or even what his chances  for survival were, but his letter was one of love, joy and encouragement. 

Why did he continually refer to the gospel?
  • Our help is in the gospel
  • Our support is there too
  • We can find our focus and
  • Be taught what we should do
What should we do with the gospel?
  • Study
  • Search
  • Share
  • Obey
  • Confirm
  • Defend
This was Paul's challenge of over 2,000 years ago. 

His challenge is still as real as it was the day he wrote to the Phillipians. We can share the love, joy and courage he knew with Jesus. Take care and God bless. BTW if you wonder which verses contain the nine references, I looked them up and would be glad to share them with you. :-) The same God that lifted the spirits of Paul while he was imprisoned is alive today!

Take care and God bless. This post linked to Spiritual Sundays and Spiritual Musing Sunday.

Amen. These words are timeless. Paul's challenge is certainly as real today as it was 2000 years ago. Amazing. Thank you for sharing.

Yes this is true, we do need to add to our imagination. This is how I read the saying Judy.
