“So who is Apollos really? Or Paul for that matter? We are only servants, agents who led you to faith, and the Lord commissioned each of us to do a particular job. My job was to plant the seed, and Apollos was called to water it. Any growth comes from God, so the ones who water and plant have nothing to brag about. God, who causes the growth, is the only One who matters. The one who plants is no greater than the one who waters; both will be rewarded based on their work. We are gardeners and field workers laboring with God. You are the vineyard, the garden, the house where God dwells.” – 1 Corinthians 3:5-9 (VOICE)
Live It Out!
It’s easy to latch on to certain pastors or ministry leaders, but we are called to latch on to Christ and Christ alone. Those of us in ministry (and we are all called to ministry) are to work together to tell the world about Jesus. No matter your role or the scope of your influence, you are only one character in the global story of faith the Lord above is writing in our midst. Just as it takes many different types of people and skills to grow crops, it will take all of us working together to see Christ’s kingdom here on earth. We are all His.
