1 Corinthians 3:10-15

"By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.

If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be seen for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work.

If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames."

Two sure ways
to destroy a building
1. Tamper with the foundation
2. Build with inferior materials.

The Lord's church must be built on Jesus Christ.
Good work will be rewarded;
unfaithful or inferior work will be discounted.
The builder will be saved,
but like the people escaping from a burning building,
all their possessions ( accomplishments) will be lost.
