Milk comes before meat in the Church—Men’s works will be tried by fire—The Saints are the temple of God, and if they are faithful, they will inherit all things.
1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2 I have fed you with amilk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but aministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own areward according to his own labour.
10 According to the agrace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other afoundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself ashall be saved; yet so as by fire.
21 Therefore let no man aglory in men. For all things are yours;
23 And ye are aChrist’s; and Christ is God’s.
