Partners in Work

Today's reading: 1 Corinthians 3:1-23

Paul turns back to the issue of divisions within the church in 1 Corinthians 3. This time around, however, he goes deeper and expands on this problem by setting out how we are all God's servants and fellow workers, and how we're designed to function in different roles within the Body of Christ. Verses 5-9 were key and conveyed much to me. The example of planting and watering was easy to understand and made a lot of sense since I am an active gardener and also grew up in a farming community. Paul makes it clear that although each of us have different roles, we are all working together for God, and He is the purpose and power behind all that we do.

"I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth" (vs. 6-7).

Do you see yourself as being a coworker or in partnership with other believers? In what area(s) has God gifted you? How are you using your gifting to complement and fulfill the needs within your local church? Tami

Then focus that we are serving/working the Lord Who is the Master and Who be glorified in all we do, be it till the soil,plant,water,God Who is the One Who calls us and equips us to work for Him/with Him.


I see myself as a prayer warrior. People have asked me personally to pray for them.

I do not see that I have a God-given gift,but I enjoy praying for those who do have them.

I am not best at helping,but I do pray for the Lord to show me the little things that I can do for Him.
