children or adults

Good evening brothers and sisters,
Paul continues his argument that quarreling and division is a sign of poor spiritual life. Teachers, pastors and other leaders are God's servants to build up the church, but it is all about God. The teachers we follow can make a big difference in our life, but the foundation of our life is Jesus. As the election draws closer, let's remember what is important. We are each made in God's image; we are brothers and sisters in Christ. Our political opinions are important, but they are not ultimate.

God bless,

1 Corinthians 3:1-10
And so, brothers and sisters, I could not speak to you as spiritual people, but rather as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for solid food. Even now you are still not ready, 3for you are still of the flesh. For as long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not of the flesh, and behaving according to human inclinations? 4For when one says, “I belong to Paul,” and another, “I belong to Apollos,” are you not merely human? 

5What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you came to believe, as the Lord assigned to each. 6I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8The one who plants and the one who waters have a common purpose, and each will receive wages according to the labor of each. 9For we are God’s servants, working together; you are God’s field, God’s building. 10According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it.
