The Church IS a Building
1 Corinthians 3:1-9

Read the full passage here.

Consumerism is good for the economy, but it is bad for the church.

1 Corinthians 3:1-2

The Christian life is the only life where we mask our immaturity under the banner of “grace”. Grace should fuel our growth, not stump our growth.   

1 Corinthians 3:3-4 

v. 1 sarkinos-composed of flesh
v. 2 sarkikos-looks like flesh

1 Corinthians 3:5-7

A mature Christian uses his gifts as tools to build with, while an immature believer uses gifts as toys to play with or trophies to boast about. Many of the members of the Corinthian church enjoyed “showing off” their gifts, but they were not interested in serving one another and edifying the church.
