Book of 1 Corinthians - Chapter 3

1 Corinthians 3:1

Brothers, I couldn't speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly, as to babies in Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:2

I fed you with milk, not with meat; for you weren't yet ready. Indeed, not even now are you ready,

1 Corinthians 3:3

for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren't you fleshly, and don't you walk in the ways of men?

1 Corinthians 3:4

For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," aren't you fleshly?

1 Corinthians 3:5

Who then is Apollos, and who is Paul, but servants through whom you believed; and each as the Lord gave to him?

1 Corinthians 3:6

I planted. Apollos watered. But God gave the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:7

So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:8

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

1 Corinthians 3:9

For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's farming, God's building.

1 Corinthians 3:10

According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But let each man be careful how he builds on it.

1 Corinthians 3:11

For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:12

But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble;

1 Corinthians 3:13

each man's work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man's work is.

1 Corinthians 3:14

If any man's work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward.

1 Corinthians 3:15

If any man's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire.

1 Corinthians 3:16

Don't you know that you are a temple of God, and that God's Spirit lives in you?

1 Corinthians 3:17

If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for God's temple is holy, which you are.

1 Corinthians 3:18

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

1 Corinthians 3:19

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He has taken the wise in their craftiness."

1 Corinthians 3:20

And again, "The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless."

1 Corinthians 3:21

Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours,

1 Corinthians 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,

1 Corinthians 3:23

and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.
