"God's Co-workers"

1 Conrinthians-3:1-9 The Common English Bible

1 Brothers and sisters, I couldn't talk to you like spiritual people but like unspiritual people, like babies in Christ. 

2 I gave you milk to drink instead of solid food, because you weren't up to it yet. 

3 Now you are still not up to it because you are still unspiritual. When jealousy and fighting exist between you, aren't you unspiritual and living by human standards? 

4 When someone says, "I belong to Paul," and someone else says, "I belong to Apollos," aren't you acting like people without the Spirit? 

5 After all, what is Apollos? What is Paul? They are servants who helped you to believe. Each one had a role given to them by the Lord: 

6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God made it grow. 

7 Because of this, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but the only one who is anything is God who makes it grow. 

8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together, but each one will receive their own reward for their own labor. 

9 We are God's coworkers, and you are God's field, God's building.
