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

1And I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as spiritual, but as carnal, as babes in Christ. 2I have given you milk to drink, and not food; for ye were not able, but neither now are ye yet able. 3For yet are ye carnal: for wherefore envy in you, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk according to man? 4For when a certain one should say, I truly am of Paul; and another, I of Apollos; are ye not carnal?

5Who then is Paul, and who Apollos, but servants by whom ye believed, and to each as the Lord gave? 6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God increased. 7So that neither he planting is anything, neither he watering; but God increasing. 8And he planting and he watering are one: and each shall receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9For we are workers together with God: the agriculture of God, ye are the building of God.

Christ Our Foundation
(Isaiah 28:14–22; Ephesians 2:19–22; 1 Peter 2:1–8)

10According to the grace of God given to me, as a wise chief-architect, I have laid the foundation, and another builds upon. And let each see how he builds upon. 11For none is able to lay another foundation above that laid, which is Jesus the Christ. 12And if any one build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, stalks; 13The work of each shall be manifested: for the day shall manifest, for in fire it is revealed; and the work of each, what sort it is, the fire shall prove. 14If the work of any shall remain which he built upon, he shall receive a reward. 15If the work of any one shall be burned, he shall be caused damage: and he shall be saved; and so as by 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 the spirit of God dwells in you? 17If any one destroy the temple of God, him will God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which ye are.

18Let none completely deceive himself. If any think to be wise in this life, let him be foolish, that he may he wise.

19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it has been written, He seizing the wise in their deceptions. 20And again, The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain. 21Therefore let none boast in men. For all things are yours; 22Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or about to be; all are yours; 23And ye of Christ; and Christ of God.
