WE  CANNOT  DO  EVERYTHING  BUT  WE  DO  WHAT  WE  CAN


Read 1 Corinthians 3:5-15


 5.  After all, who is Apollos?  And who is Paul?  We are simply God's servants, by whom you were led  to believe. Each one of us does the work which the Lord gave him to do:

 6.  I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plant, but it was God who made the plant grow.

 7.  The one who plants and the one who waters really do not matter.  It is God who matters, because He makes the plant grow.

 8.  There is no difference between the one who plants and the one who waters; God will reward each one according to the work each has done.

 9.  For we are partners working together for God, and you are God's field.  You are also God's building.

10.  Using the gift that God gave me, I did the work of an expert builder and laid the foundation, and someone else is building on it. But each of you must be careful how you build.

11.  For God has already placed Jesus Christ as the one and only foundation, and no other foundation can be laid.

12.  Some will use gold or silver or precious stones in building on the foundation; others will use wood or grass or straw.

13.  And the quality of each person's work will be seen when the Day of Christ exposes it. For on that day fire will reveal everyone's work; the fire will test it and show its real quality.

14.  If what was built on the foundation survives the fire, the builder will receive a reward..

15.  But if your work is burnt up, then you  will lose it; but you yourself will be saved, as if you had escaped through the fire.


     We plant the seeds that one day will grow.  We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.  We lay foundations that will need further development.  We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.  This attitude helps us to do small things and to leave "an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest."


     The Apostle Paul encourages us to be faithful in our tasks and to wait on God who gives the increase.  Read 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 above.


     Let us not allow discouragement to cause us to quit. In God's own time our work will bear fruit.


We are a success in God's kingdom if we are faithful where He has placed us.
