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

1AND I, brethren, have been unable to speak to you as unto spiritual men, but as to carnal, even as to babes in Christ. 2And I have given you milk to drink, and not meat: for hitherto ye have not been capable of it, yea, even to the present moment ye are not capable of it. 3For ye are still carnal: for since there are among you envy, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as other men? 4For when one saith, I am indeed of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?

5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but the ministers through whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to each of us? 6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7So then neither is he that planteth any thing, nor he that watereth; but God who giveth the increase. 8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: but every one shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9For we are God?s fellowlabourers: ye are God?s husbandry, ye are God?s building.

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

10According to the grace of God given unto me, as a skilful architect, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every one take heed how he buildeth upon it. 11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus the Messiah. 12But if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, timbers, hay, stubble; 13every man?s work shall be made manifest: for that day shall declare it, for it shall be laid open by fire; and the fire shall prove every man?s work of what sort it is. 14If any man?s work which he hath built abide the trial, he shall receive a reward. 15If any man?s work be burnt up, he shall suffer loss: but himself shall be saved; yet so as through the fire.

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

16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17If any man prophane the temple of God, him will God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

18Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinketh himself a wise man in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

19For the wisdom of this world is folly in the sight of God. For it is written, ?He entangleth the wise in their own craftiness.? 20And again, ?The Lord knoweth the reasonings of the wise, that they are futile.? 21Wherefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your?s; 22whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all things are your?s; 23and ye are Christ?s; and Christ is God?s.
