1 Corinthians 3
The church at Corinth was plagued by an immature and divisive spirit as various members oriented themselves around human personalities rather than the Person and work of Christ. Paul therefore exhorts them to focus on the Lord rather than His servants. Using an agricultural metaphor, Paul says that it is God who causes the growth. Switching to an architectural metaphor, the apostle argues that Jesus Christ is the foundation upon which we must build. As we build on this foundation, we will be rewarded for that which endures on the day when God tests the quality of our work. Since the Holy Spirit dwells in us, we should walk in the wisdom of looking to Jesus rather than being impressed by people.
READING of 1 CORINTHIANS 3
Lord, may I find my identity, dignity, and worth in Christ Jesus rather than in the superficial things that may impress people, but are passing away.
