C. The Church, God's Cultivated Land and God's Building

1. Growth in Life Needed

1 And I, brothers, was not able to speak to you as to 1aspiritual men, but as to 2bfleshy, as to 3cinfants in Christ.

2 I 1gave you 2amilk to drink, not 2solid bfood, for you were cnot yet able to receive it. But 3neither yet now are you able,

3 For you are still afleshly. For if there is 1bjealousy and cstrife among you, are you not fleshly and do you not walk 2according to the manner of man?

4 For when someone says, aI am of Paul, and another, I of Apollos, are you not men of flesh?

5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? aMinisters through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave to beach one of them.

6 aI 1planted, bApollos watered, but cGod caused the growth.

7 So then 1neither is he who plants aanything nor he who waters, but God who causes the growth.

8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, but aeach will receive his own 1breward according to his own clabor.

9 For we are 1God's afellow workers; you are God's 2bcultivated land, God's cbuilding.
