For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11)
Lord, all other foundations are shifting sand.
Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, (1 Corinthians 3:12)
Father, please help each of us build with the best we have.
each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. (1 Corinthians 3:13)
Holy Spirit, burn away the dross in our lives.
If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. (1 Corinthians 3:14)
Jesus, you are the rock that does not move or shake: help us build enduring work with you as the foundation.
If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. (1 Corinthians 3:15)
Jesus, thank you for saving me.
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)
Holy Spirit, please come and dwell in me with your power.
If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. (1 Corinthians 3:17)
Lord Jesus, cleanse your temple, the Church, which is your body. Drive from it all strange doctrines which excuse and promote the defiling of the body. Bring those who teach such things to repentance. Thank you.
