A Scripture that the world needs to see

1 Corinthians Bible Background

New Testament: 1Co 3.11

To read the Bible in a year, read First Corinthians 3 on August 21, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

The world works endlessly to find solutions to its problems, but at best the world’s solutions only bring temporary relief. The reason for that is that they do not even start with the right foundation. There is only one foundation upon which to build, as Paul declared:

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

– 1 Corinthians 3.11

I have been in ministry for 40 years this year, 2020, and I can testify to the truthfulness of this passage. Souls, whether in the world or in the church, who do not make Jesus Christ the foundation of their lives, have troubles that overwhelm them and then conquer them.

Souls who lay the foundation of Jesus Christ have lives of success. They are successful as people.

Questions:

  • Upon what are you building your life?
  • Upon what do you seek to lay in the lives of other people as a foundation?

  1. There’s a correction that I sent you for this devo that still needs to be made.

    In your first paragraph, in the last sentence, you should add the word “one” before the word “foundation.”
