Incorruptible vs. Corruptible

Paul’s teaching also reveals the nature of work related to the building. We learn about the materials, incorruptible vs. corruptible. Those materials will be judged, not directly by Jesus Christ, but by the day itself. The day will declare the nature of the material (and hence the quality of the work). What day? The day of His appearing.

"Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is." 1 Cor 3:13

The fire of that day will test the nature of the work; and that which “remains,” and “abides,” is rewarded. That which is perishable, or corruptible, is burned off. This means it will literally be gone! Corruptible things – foolish mistakes, dead works, and sins – will not remain to be referenced, inspected, or a source of shame for us.

The fire that tests the work will be the same “fire” that has transfigured us, by which we put on our incorruptible Body. Our earthly tabernacle will have been dissolved. Our incorruptible body will be part of the habitation, the building of God.”

“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” 2 Cor 5:1
