Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:1 - Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:2 - I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:3 - You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:4 - For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:5 - What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:6 - I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:7 - So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:8 - The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:9 - For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:10 - By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:11 - For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:12 - If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:13 - their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:14 - If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:15 - If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:16 - Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:17 - If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:18 - Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:19 - For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”[fn];

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:20 - and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:21 - So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:22 - whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas[fn] or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:23 - and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.
