Love Never Fails: God’s Plan for You
I Corinthians 3:5-23
The Problem: “You are still worldly.” I Cor. 3:3a
The Challenge: “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” I Cor. 4:2
Main Idea: The promise of eternal reward is the godly motivation for faithfully following the plan of God.
- God sovereignly accomplishes his purposes through each of us as we faithfully follow his plan. 3:5-9
- God graciously rewards us in eternity for faithfully serving him in this life by doing what builds up His church. 3:10-15
Warning 1: Those who live self-serving lives do not receive eternal rewards. 3:15
Warning 2: Those who work to destroy God’s church will be disciplined by the Lord. 3:16-17
- God makes his superior wisdom available to all of us who are in Christ. 3:18-23
Are you working for eternal rewards? Is your focus on Christ or others? What are you doing to know the wisdom of the Lord?
