It is of the utmost importance to distinguish between what Christ builds, and what man builds. The “gates of hell” will assuredly prevail against all that is merely of man; and hence it would be a fatal mistake to apply to man’s building words that only apply to Christ’s. Man may build with “wood, hay stubble,” alas! He does – but all that our Lord Christ builds shall stand for ever. The stamp of eternity is upon every work of His hand. All praise to His glorious name.
