"Spirit of Holiness"
Our scripture today is from 1 Corinthians chapter 3, verses 9-15 from the Common English Bible.
9 We are God's coworkers, and you are God's field, God's building. 10 I laid a foundation like a wise master builder according to God's grace that was given to me, but someone else is building on top of it. Each person needs to pay attention to the way they build on it. 11 No one can lay any other foundation besides the one that is already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 So, whether someone builds on top of the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, or hay, 13 each one's work will be clearly shown. The day will make it clear, because it will be revealed with fire—the fire will test the quality of each one's work. 14 If anyone's work survives, they'll get a reward. 15 But if anyone's work goes up in flames, they'll lose it. However, they themselves will be saved as if they had gone through a fire.
Leader: This is the word of God for a people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
