Every Christian’s work shall be made manifest.

1Co 3:9  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

1Co 3:10  According to the grace 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 buildeththereupon.

1Co 3:11  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1Co 3:12  Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

1Co 3:13  Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

1Co 3:14  If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

1Co 3:15  If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

The gold, silver, and precious stones are a product of God’s creation, while the wood, hay, and stubble are a result of natural earthly growth.

Christians are caught between 2 worlds, the Earthly and the Spiritual, and they are in constant battle with each other.

The Holy Spirit is a good example of how to build with gold, silver and precious stones.

Even being equal as a God with the Father, and the Son He is still subordinate to both the Father and the Son. Never seeking His own glorification, but always pointing back to Jesus.

Joh 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Joh 16:14  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Joh 16:15  All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

We unfortunately have a tendency to build with wood, hay, and stubble.

One word sums up wood, hay, and stubble, and that word is PRIDE!

We speak of “ourselves”, the “Me, Me, Me” syndrome, the “self” disease, the look at what “I did” cancer.

1Pe 5:5  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

1Pe 5:6  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
