Key Verse:

1 Cor 3:9

For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's cultivated land, God's building.

Footnotes:
The believers, who have been regenerated in Christ with God's (life), are God's cultivated (land), a (farm) in God's new creation to grow Christ that precious (materials) may be produced for God's building. Hence, we are not only God's cultivated land but also God's (building). Corporately, we as the church of God have Christ planted in us. Christ must (grow) in us and, in the sense of this chapter, produce out of us not fruit but the precious materials of (gold), (silver), and precious (stone) for the building of God's (habitation) on earth. (See 1 Cor 3:9 note 2)
