On Friday I published an article that touched in the doctrine of predestination and the privilege we are given as the elect to preach the Gospel. This brought about a very good discussion on Twitter (you can follow me, @AikenWS) and I thought that providing a passage that would touch on the sovereignty of God in a lighter manner would be a beneficial endeavor.
1 Corinthians 3:7-9 (ESV)
So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.
As with all of the passages we strive to commit to memory, do more than just memorize. Study it. Really think about the meaning (in light of the context) and how that meaning can then apply to us today (while also staying true to the original audience). I hope that you enjoy this passage!
Don’t forget to come back during the week with what you find in your studies or something of interest related to the passage that you would like to share with us. I look forward to reading your thoughts and meditating on this passage with you.
(Also, don’t forget to use the “sharing” buttons below to share this passage with friends and family. The more the merrier!)
