Reward for Your Labour

Bible Reading: 1Corinthians 3:1-23

If anyone’s work is burned up, he will experience loss, but he himself will be saved-but only as through fire.

1 Corinthians 3:15 CSB

We discovered Paul challenging the people of Corinthians that they are not spiritual, but walking in the flesh as babies. Many Christians who have been in church for years still misunderstand basic Bible teaching on how a Christian should conduct their lives like Christ.  They were still drinking baby milk of God’s word when they should be eating flesh or bones. He told them they are walking in the flesh because there was strife and envy among them. Having segregation, sectionalism and different camp will not help to build the church.  Some say, I belong to Apollos, not of Paul so I will not go to the headquarter church or give toward the work. This is the work of the Master. We are to be careful how we build on it. You will be rewarded on how you build. If you build your house with wood, hay or subtle it will be burnt off. You will loose your reward. If you build with gold, silver or precious stones fire won’t hurt it. Instead the fire will purify it.

Prayer Point: Lord, separate me from those who cause division in the house of God
