Bible: 1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Immaturity and Self-deception
3:1 So, brothers and sisters, 1 I could not speak to you as spiritual people, but instead as people of the flesh, 2 as infants in Christ. 3:2 I fed you milk, 3 not solid food, for you were not yet ready. In fact, you are still not ready, 3:3 for you are still influenced by the flesh. 4 For since there is still jealousy and dissension among you, are you not influenced by the flesh and behaving like unregenerate people? 5 3:4 For whenever someone says, “I am with Paul,” or “I am with Apollos,” are you not merely human? 6
3:5 What is Apollos, really? Or what is Paul? Servants through whom you came to believe, and each of us in the ministry the Lord gave us. 7 3:6 I planted, 8 Apollos watered, but God caused it to grow. 3:7 So neither the one who plants counts for anything, 9 nor the one who waters, but God who causes the growth. 3:8 The one who plants and the one who waters work as one, 10 but each will receive his reward according to his work. 3:9 We are coworkers belonging to God. 11 You are God’s field, God’s building.
