Building on a Solid Foundation (8 of 30)
Series: THE BOOK OF I CORINTHIANS

I Corinthians 3:11-23
August 25, 2004


INTRODUCTION:

1. Last week we compared the Milk Christian with the
Meat Christian. The Milk Christian is immature, whereas the meat Christian is not. He is fully developed in the Word--he knows how to exercise his faith and live in accordance with God's plan for his life.

2. The Milk Christian, on the other hand, is the one who
is newly saved or spiritually immature. Instead of the meat of the Word, he requires and needs milk. He still needs to learn the very basics of his Christian faith. One of the basics--and Paul addresses it, is the ability to get along with one another. The Corinthians were fighting among themselves. They were divided over who was the greatest of Christian leaders (3:1-4).

3. This evening, we will look at (vv. 11-23), where Paul
discusses the importance of building our Christian life on a proper foundation. The Foundation to which (or to Whom) he refers, is Christ. The building is the church: 1 Cor. 3:9-10, "For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. 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 buildeth thereupon."

4. If we build on a proper foundation and with the proper
materials, there will be no carnality--there will be no division. We cannot build with wood, hay and stubble, nor with division and partiality and expect God to be pleased with our work.

5. This evening I want to give you three simple points,
as we consider the message; "Building On a Solid Foundation."

I. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FOUNDATION
II. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE TEMPLE
III. THE VALUE OF THE WORK

I. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FOUNDATION

A. The foundation must be solid

1. The foundation Paul refers to is Jesus Christ. ...
