For we are God's fellow workers;1 you are God's field,2 God's building.310
By the grace God has given me,4 I laid a foundation5 as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.612
If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
his work will be shown for what it is,7 because the Day8 will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work.914
If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward.1015
If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.1116
Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple12 and that God's Spirit lives in you?1317
If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
