1 Corinthians 3:15
If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
I worked for a house mover named Nathan Coon. He was a Christian and very smart in the Bible.
We’d often talk about scripture while on the job and I remember this verse coming up a time or two.
It involves the judgment of God.
Each person builds their life on something.
It’s clear that Jesus Christ is the only foundation on which you should build your life.
But then many people start building on Him things that matter and things that don’t.
This becomes clear on judgment day when we stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and our works are revealed by fire.
Many of the things done are purified and stand the test.
Others are consumed and gone in an instant.
Yet, if anyone has Christ as the foundation they are saved, yet so as through fire.
It is good to know the power of Christ’s redemption is stronger than the power of sin.
