1. Read 1 Corinthians 3:1-23
Background: Paul resumes his frustration with Corinth for allowing divisions to occur. The divisions in Corinth further prove to Paul that this church is not growing in their faith – they are acting like infants. He reminds them that each person works for God and it is God alone we should be following. Then he gives the people a metaphor. They are God’s temple, Jesus is the foundation of that temple, and their works are the building materials of the temple. If their works are good and loving, they will be rewarded; however, if they are done without love they will be lost. And these divisions that are occurring prevent a good solid ‘[spiritual temple’ from being built in Corinth. He finishes by begging the Corinthians to be ‘fools’ for Christ alone.

2. What does it mean to be a ‘fool’ for Christ?

3. How would your life be different if you were a sold-out ‘fool’ for Jesus? What would you do the same? What would you do differently? What would people think of you?

3. On a scale of 1 (straw) to 10 (gold), how sturdy is your spiritual ‘temple’? How does that compare to one year ago? What are you doing to grow as a Christian? What do you need to do?
