EVERY MEMBER OF THIS HOLY TEMPLE WHICH BELONGS TO CHRIST HAS ITS SPECIAL PART TO PLAY.
Didn’t you realise that you were God’s temple and that the Spirit of God was living among you? If anybody should destroy the temple of God, God will destroy him, because the temple of God is sacred; and you are that temple. Make no mistake about it: if any one of you thinks of himself as wise, in the ordinary sense of the word, then he must learn to be a fool before he really can be wise.
Why? Because the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As scripture says: The Lord knows wise men’s thoughts: he knows how useless they are, or again: God is not convinced by the arguments of the wise. So there is nothing to boast about in anything human: Paul, Apollos, Cephas, the world, life and death, the present and the future, all are your servants; but you belong to Christ and Christ belongs to God.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
