Sixth Journal Entry — Building Our Home in Mexico

logoWe saw some concrete advances in the building of our house this week, literally concrete advances, with the pouring of concrete for the foundation of the columns that will hold up the front and back patio as well as the front and back edges of the concrete roof.

foundation2Marco, our builder, was apologetic the other day about the apparent lack of visible progress on the building project, but he told us (through our daughter Julie interpreting) that he wanted the foundation to be good and solid, so it would hold up the house. We agreed with him that we certainly want a good foundation.

foundation1There are so many principles by which people attempt to establish “spirituality” in their lives. It’s a spiritual smorgasbord out there! Those of us who are followers of Jesus are absolutely convinced that He has eternally been the Son of God, is co-creator and co-sustainer of the universe, and was sent by God to carry out a plan for our salvation. We believe Him to be the only true foundation upon which to build a religious faith. The apostle Paul put it succinctly when he wrote, For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11)

Now we watch in these coming days all that which will be built on the foundation Marco put down this past week. The building adventure continues!
