“God’s Fellow Workers”
Please read the following verses.
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly — mere infants in Christ.
2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.
3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?
4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere men?
5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe — as the Lord has assigned to each his task.
6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.
7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.
8 The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.
9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.
The Lord God puts our local bodies of Christ together in a way that uses the talents of that set of believers.
Perhaps, we might want to do a certain duty in our local Church.
We may or may not be in the will of the Lord God.
It has been said, that in years gone by people would attend, perhaps join a Church fellowship and say, what can I do for the Lord in this place.
It seems in these days, people come to the Church and ask what can you do for me.
May we all come before the Godhead, asking what it is they want us to do for Them.
