11For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.12If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,13their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.14If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.15If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.
13But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.14This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”15Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,
10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives
