“HOW TO BUILD A FIRE-PROOF LIFE”
I COR. 3:10-15
A. The sum of a man’s life is the works that he has done during his life-time, whether good or bad.
1. This means: The judging of our works is also a judging of our lives.
2. Since our works will be judged by fire we must conclude that our lives will also be judged by fire. Hence the title of this message: “HOW TO BUILD A FIRE-PROOF LIFE.”
B. The fiery test is not to reveal whether we are Christians or not, but whether our works as Christians are a credit to Christ or not.
C. Paul, “as a wise master builder”, under the inspiration of the Spirit, pro-vides believers with several fundamental facts concerning: (1)what the Christian’s life and work is to be; (2)WHAT HE IS TO BUILD UPON, AND 3HOW – IF HIS LIFE’S WORK IS TO STAND THE TEST BY FIRE AND BE REWARDED.
