Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:1 - So, brothers and sisters, I could not speak to you as spiritual people, but instead as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:2 - I fed you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready. In fact, you are still not ready,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:3 - for you are still influenced by the flesh. For since there is still jealousy and dissension among you, are you not influenced by the flesh and behaving like unregenerate people?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:4 - For whenever someone says, "I am with Paul," or "I am with Apollos," are you not merely human?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:5 - What is Apollos, really? Or what is Paul? Servants through whom you came to believe, and each of us in the ministry the Lord gave us.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:6 - I planted, Apollos watered, but God caused it to grow.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:7 - So neither the one who plants counts for anything, nor the one who waters, but God who causes the growth.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:8 - The one who plants and the one who waters work as one, but each will receive his reward according to his work.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:9 - We are coworkers belonging to God. You are God's field, God's building.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:10 - According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master-builder I laid a foundation, but someone else builds on it. And each one must be careful how he builds.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:11 - For no one can lay any foundation other than what is being laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:12 - If anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:13 - each builder's work will be plainly seen, for the Day will make it clear, because it will be revealed by fire. And the fire will test what kind of work each has done.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:14 - If what someone has built survives, he will receive a reward.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:15 - If someone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss. He himself will be saved, but only as through fire.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:16 - Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:17 - If someone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, which is what you are.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:18 - Guard against self-deception, each of you. If someone among you thinks he is wise in this age, let him become foolish so that he can become wise.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:19 - For the wisdom of this age is foolishness with God. As it is written, "He catches the wise in their craftiness."
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:20 - And again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:21 - So then, no more boasting about mere mortals! For everything belongs to you,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:22 - whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future. Everything belongs to you,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:23 - and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
