We’re a Team

 

I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

--1 Corinthians 3:6-8

 

                                                                                                                

 

Pastor Paul Strang



















We’re all working for the same thing.  You may plant, I may water, but God brings

the increase.  I dont want to do your job, you dont want to do my job, but we

work together as one and every man shall receive his own reward according to his

own labor for we are laborers together with God.  You are Gods husbandry. The

Greek says you are Gods field and you are Gods building.
            Paul was looking on this congregation and saying youre not my field; youre Gods field.  Youre not my building; youre Gods building.  Youre Gods congregation, and God can minister to you through a number of ways.  I trust you have a variety of different spiritual inputs coming into your life whether it is from your pastor or from other teachers, and just because one minister says something doesnt mean youre going to get it.  In fact, one minister can preach a great message and you think you get it until some other minister says it and then you really get it.
 In other words, we need each other in the body of Christ, and its all for one purpose.
            What are your strengths?  Your personality may not be one that would knock on peoples doors and ask them if they are saved.  You may be one who presents the gospel simply by living the Christian life.  We need those who’ll do door-to-door witnessing.  We need those who’ll stand in the pulpit each Sunday and teach the Word.  We also need those who’ll show the world that even in the midst of trials and tribulations, their trust is in the Lord and He always comes through.  God is going to save them.  You and I do not possess the power to save people, but we do
possess the power to operate in the gifts and talents He has imparted to us.  Every one of us is important to the body of Christ for we make up a team.  Saving the world is a team effort.  Think about what strengths you have that will advance the kingdom of God.  Some will plant, some will water, and God will give the increase.

Paul
