1 Corinthians 3:6-7 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 Corinthians 3:6-7

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.”

I love how God lets us help Him with things He doesn’t need help with just so we can be near Him and be part of what He is doing! He desires that close, intimate relationship with us so much that He allows us to help Him, when in fact, He is God and doesn’t need our help to do anything!

As I was praying this morning, the Holy Spirit related it to me like this: it’s like a master mechanic and his 7-year-old son working on a car; the mechanic doesn’t need the little boy’s help, but he wants to spend time with him and build that bond, so he allows him to hold the flashlight and get the tools as he needs them! When they’re done, the little boy is excited because he and his dad fixed the car, and the dad is excited because he got to spend time with his son and include him in his work! 


I believe this is an analogy of how the Lord views His work through and around us! He doesn’t need us to hold the spiritual flashlight for Him but allows us and even encourages us to so that we can be part of His work and in His presence!!!

In the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, humans play one part, and it’s not a good one, yet He entrusts us to carry that message to all nations! The most precious gift you can receive in this lifetime is your salvation through Jesus Christ, and God trusts us to be workers in that field!!!! I encourage you to invest in someone’s life today, because Jesus invested all of Himself into yours about 2000 years ago!

2 Corinthians 5:20: We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

I love you all! God bless you!! Glory, Honor, and Praise forever to God Almighty, Jesus Christ the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit!
