1 Corinthians 3

In Christ all has been given to us — life, death, the present and future, and many different leaders to serve us.  All this is ours because of Jesus.  He should be the focus of our lives, and be the One of whom we boast.


“All are yours — life, death, the present and future.”  We are of Christ, and Christ is of God.
