How did we see God move this week as we tried to live out the Spirit’s leading? What challenges did we encounter? What victories can we celebrate?

1Co 3:5-15 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw– 13 each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 14 If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.

Recall from Sunday:

3:5-7 God works…

3:8-11 … through us …

3:12-15 …so build to last

Reflect: What sticks out to you personally from the passage?

What impacted you on a personal level from Sunday’s sermon?

Paul refused to take credit for the work God was doing through him in Corinth. Is there a place in your life God has been working where you haven’t given him the credit? How do you give credit and praise to God for what he’s doing?

Paul and Apollos’s small work had explosive results because God was the one doing the growing. Is there a work God is calling you to do that seems beyond your capacity? Is there a relationship you are fighting for that feels like it’s never going to improve? If God is the one who does the growing, how does that impact your burden?

Jesus’s return will expose whether our work was eternal or passing. What are you spending your life on that will last forever? What is the Spirit telling you through this passage about what is worthwhile in your work?

How can you all give God the credit for his work this week? Is there a friend or family member or coworker in each group member’s life they know they will connect with this week? Seek the Spirit together to see how you all can better publicly acknowledge God for what he’s done.

How can you lean into the areas of your work that are worthwhile or eternal? Seek the Spirit together to see how you can work this week in a way that builds on the foundation of Christ.
