God’s Fellow Workers
(Hebrews 5:11–14)

1And I, brethren, was not able to speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even babes in Christ. 2I have fed you with milk, not with meat; for you were not yet able. But ye are not now yet able: 3for ye are yet carnal. For where there are envy and strife among you, are you not carnal, and walking about according to man? 4For when one may say, I am indeed of Paul; another, I am of Apollos; are you not men?

5Then what is Apollos? and what is Paul? But ministers through whom ye believed; even as the Lord gave to each one. 6I planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7So neither is the one planting, nor the one watering anything, but God the one giving the increase. 8But he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and each one shall receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9For we are God's fellow-laborers; ye are God's farm; ye are God's building.

Christ Our Foundation
(Ephesians 2:19–22; 1 Peter 2:1–8)

10According to the grace of God which was given unto me, I as a wise architect, laid the foundation; and another builds on it. Let each one take heed how he builds. 11For other foundation no one is able to lay beside the one which is laid, who is Jesus Christ. 12But if any one builds upon the foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13the work of each will be made manifest: for the day will reveal it, because it is revealed by fire; and the same fire will try the work of each what soil it is. 14And if the work of any one which he builds, abides, he will receive a reward: 15But if the work of any one shall be burnt up, he shall suffer loss; but himself shall be saved, but as through the fire.

God’s Temple and God’s Wisdom
(Romans 12:1–8; 1 Corinthians 6:18–20)

16Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17If any one destroys the temple of God, him will God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which ye are.

18Let no one deceive himself. If any one seems to be wise among you in this age, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it has been written. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20And again, The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21So let no one boast among men; for all things are yours; 22whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. 23All things are yours; and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
