For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;
for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?
Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it.
Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to exceed what is written, so that no one of you will become arrogant in behalf of one against the other.
But this I say by way of concession, not of command.
I am not speaking these things according to human judgment, am I? Or does not the Law also say these things?
For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit;
For you can all prophesy one by one , so that all may learn and all may be exhorted;
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.
I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord , I die daily .
If from human motives I fought with wild beasts at Ephesus, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, LET US EAT AND DRINK, FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.
On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.
