The Problem of Immaturity

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:1 -

For my part, brothers and sisters, I was not able to speak to you as spiritual people but as people of the flesh, as babies in Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:2 -

I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, since you were not yet ready for it. In fact, you are still not ready,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:3 -

because you are still worldly. For since there is envy and strife[fn] among you, are you not worldly and behaving like mere humans?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:4 -

For whenever someone says, “I belong to Paul,” and another, “I belong to Apollos,” are you not acting like mere humans?

The Role of God’s Servants

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:5 -

What then is Apollos? What is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, and each has the role the Lord has given.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:6 -

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:7 -

So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:8 -

Now he who plants and he who waters are one,[fn] and each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:9 -

For we are God’s coworkers.[fn] You are God’s field, God’s building.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:10 -

According to God’s grace that was given to me, I have laid a foundation as a skilled master builder,[fn] and another builds on it. But each one is to be careful how he builds on it.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:11 -

For no one can lay any other foundation than what has been laid down. That foundation is Jesus Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:12 -

If anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or straw,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:13 -

each one’s work will become obvious. For the day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire; the fire will test the quality of each one’s work.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:14 -

If anyone’s work that he has built survives, he will receive a reward.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:15 -

If anyone’s work is burned up, he will experience[fn] loss, but he himself will be saved ​— ​but only as through fire.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:16 -

Don’t you yourselves know that you are God’s temple and that the Spirit of God lives in you?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:17 -

If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, and that is what you are.

The Folly of Human Wisdom

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:18 -

Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks he is wise in this age, let him become a fool so that he can become wise.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:19 -

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, since it is written, He catches the wise in their craftiness;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:20 -

and again, The Lord knows that the reasonings of the wise are futile.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:21 -

So let no one boast in human leaders, for everything is yours ​— ​

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:22 -

whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come ​— ​everything is yours,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:23 -

and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
