(Week 22 of the year: Wednesday)
WE ARE FELLOW WORKERS WITH GOD; YOU ARE GOD’S FARM, GOD’S BUILDING.
And I, brethren, could not speak to you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal. As unto little ones in Christ.
I gave you milk to drink, not meat; for you were not able as yet. But neither indeed are you now able; for you are yet carnal.
For, whereas there is among you envying and contention, are you not carnal, and walk according to man?
For while one saith, I indeed am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollo; are you not men? What then is Apollo, and what is Paul?
The ministers of him whom you have believed; and to every one as the Lord hath given.
I have planted, Apollo watered, but God gave the increase.
Therefore, neither he that planteth is any thing, nor he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
Now he that planteth, and he that watereth, are one. And every man shall receive his own reward, according to his own labour.
For we are God’s coadjutors: you are God’s husbandry; you are God’s building.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
