The Problem of Immaturity

Tools specific to 1Co 3:1

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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.

Tools specific to 1Co 3:2

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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,

Tools specific to 1Co 3:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:3

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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.

Tools specific to 1Co 3:6

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:6

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:7

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:8

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:9

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:10

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:11

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:12

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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.

Tools specific to 1Co 3:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:14

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:15

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:16

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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.

Tools specific to 1Co 3:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:19

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:20

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:21

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

Tools specific to 1Co 3:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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,

Tools specific to 1Co 3:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 3:23

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