Today we’ll spend time with two scripture passages, one from 2nd Samuel and one from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. Both have something to do with the topic of building, a topic that was on the minds of people of faith centuries ago and that continues to be on the minds of people of faith in this day and age as well.
I know it’s on our minds because it’s a question that I hear from folks quite often. “What’s happening with Labor of Love?” “Do we have any updates?” “Are we close to construction?” And, given the fact that the inception of this project was many, many moons ago, that is a very reasonable question! It is a project that has been long awaited and much anticipated! We’ll talk a little bit about our own project as it relates to building but, just as importantly, we’ll talk about God’s notions around this topic of building. What does God want from God’s people when it comes to buildings? What does God NOT want? What needs to be broken down first in order to build up? How do we know, in God’s realm, when it’s time to build? Who is the builder? What is being built?
