1 Corinthians 3:16—Don’t you yourselves know that you are God’s temple and that the Spirit of God lives in you?
1. We are accountable for
1 Corinthians 1:11-12—For it has been reported to me about you, my brothers and sisters, by members of Chloe’s people, that there is rivalry among you. 12What I am saying is this: One of you says, “I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apollos,” or “I belong to Cephas,” or “I belong to Christ.”
1 Corinthians 3:1-4—For my part, brothers and sisters, I was not able to speak to you as spiritual people but as people of the flesh, as babies in Christ. 2 I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, since you were not yet ready for it. In fact, you are still not ready, 3 because you are still worldly. For since there is envy and strife among you, are you not worldly and behaving like mere humans? 4 For whenever someone says, “I belong to Paul,” and another, “I belong to Apollos,”are you not acting like mere humans?
2. We are accountable to .
a. We each have a in aiding the spiritual growth of one another.
1 Corinthians 3:5-9—What then is Apollos? What is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, and each has the role the Lord has given. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So, then, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God’s coworkers. You are God’s field, God’s building.
3. We are accountable to .
1 Corinthians 3:10-11—According to God’s grace that was given to me, I have laid a foundation as a skilled master builder, and another builds on it. But each one is to be careful how he builds on it. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than what has been laid down. That foundation is Jesus Christ.
a. The foundation is .
b. In the fire, truth and false faith .
1 Corinthians 3:12-13—If anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or straw, 13 each one’s work will become obvious. For the day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire; the fire will test the quality of each one’s work.
When comes, disgrace follows, but with , comes wisdom.
1 Corinthians 3:18-19—Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks he is wise in this age, let him become a fool so that he can become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, since it is written, He catches the wise in their craftiness.
