1 Corinthians 3:1-23

There are four words that will help with your study of this Sunday’s passage beforehand.

Maturing (v1.4):
We never outgrow the nourishing milk of the Word (1 Peter 2:2), but we cannot grow strong unless we also have the “solid food” (Hebrews 5:12-14).

Harvesting (v5-9):
Everybody has a place in the Lord’s harvest, and all are doing His work (John 4:34-38). There must be no competing or comparing, for the Lord alone recognizes the work and gives the reward.

Building (v10-17):
Paul writes about the local church and the materials we put into it as we serve (Prov 2:1-5; 3:13-15). Substituting man’s wisdom for God’s Word means building with perishable materials that will burn up at the judgement seat of Christ.

Glorifying God (v18-23):
Because the Corinthian believers glorified in human teachers (1:12), and human wisdom, they robbed God of the glory that rightfully belonged to Him. “Let no-one boast in men” is a command, not a suggestion.
