Chapter 3

1CO.3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.
1CO.3:2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;
1CO.3:3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
1CO.3:4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?
1CO.3:5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?
1CO.3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.
1CO.3:7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
1CO.3:8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
1CO.3:9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.
1CO.3:10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.
1CO.3:11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1CO.3:12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
1CO.3:13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.
1CO.3:14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.
1CO.3:15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
1CO.3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
1CO.3:17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
1CO.3:18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
1CO.3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;
1CO.3:20 and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”
1CO.3:21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours:
1CO.3:22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come–all are yours.
1CO.3:23 And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
