By Fire

today's reading.
1 Corinthians 3:11-151 Corinthians 1:4-8    For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ...

think about it.
What is the foundation on which we're to build (3:11)? What will "the Day" reveal and how (3:12-13)? What will be rewarded (3:14)? When will this all be tested and rewarded (1:7-8)? What do we have today that helps us build for the eternal (1:4-7, 9)? If you were to face that Day today, what in your life do you think would make the grade?

As Christians, we're all workers for the Lord. But how much thought do we really give to what that work is and how we we're going about completing it? Hmm...

We see pretty clearly in 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 that the Lord cares about our work for Him. In this short passage we're told that on judgment day the work we've done will be tested with fire and whatever work survives the fire--that work that is acceptable and of quality--will be rewarded.

So what encouragement can we draw from these verses? How will you use 1 Cor. 3:11-15 to help you as you work for the Lord going forward? Tami W. 

P.S. We're now into week 2 of Dr. Kroll's 3 week series on the Judgment Seat of Christ and eternal rewards. This is an incredible series, full of information we need to know about this important day in our future and what we should expect there. I invite you join us if you're not already listening.
