✅ Subscribe to our YouTube Channel @Dr. Scott Silverii talks about Watering, Working and Warning-1Corinthians 3:4-16
1 Corinthians 3:5-8 (NKJV) Watering, Working, Warning 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. The Watering We struggle as a Body when immaturity mistakes the pastor’s fame with the gospel’s truth. They are NOT the same. The Working We struggle as a Body when we want believers to look like us instead of Jesus. Discipleship is not telling new believers what you think – Teach them to read and understand what the Bible reveals. The Warning We struggle as a Body when we serve half heartedly or give God our leftovers. Christians will not have salvation judges, but we will be assessed of our work for eternal rewards. We don’t have an eternal perspective about kingdom rewards. HOW TO HANDLE STRUGGLES? Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve. Colossians 3:23-24 (Amplified Bible) You get what you give Are You Sowing Kingdom Seeds With Expectation Of Kingdom Fruit? For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:8 (NKJV) Effort is a heart condition. Once Body grows, the integrity of the foundation will either support it or fracture. Be a good steward of God’s kingdom. Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 (Amplified Bible)
