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

Application:

Are you working for eternal rewards? Is your focus on Christ or others? What are you doing to know the wisdom of the Lord?
