We are all equal workers in the field, but…

the spiritual life from that field is entirely by God’s grace and power. (1 Corinthians 3-8) Bible notes

For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men. For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?  “carnal” (controlled by fallen flesh) (1 Corinthians:3-4)

As Paul said who are we but, ministers through whom we believed as the Lord gave to each one? I planted, Apollos watered, and God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he that waters, but God gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. (1 Corinthians 3:5-8)

For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, (Paul) as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. (1 Corinthians 3:9-10)

But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which was laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. (1 Corinthians 3:11-15

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. (1 Corinthians 3-10)

You can only belong to one church, the church of Jesus Christ (a personal relationship with Him, growing in His word as a little child, being saved and born again ( John 3:3) or to the church of satan dead and dead again (twice). (Revelation 21-8)

Where will you go? We only plant and water. Only God converts the human soul. Only God draws us through Jesus Christ, into eternity with Him. You are in the Book of Life or out. There is nothing you can do to earn it.

One thought on “We are all equal workers in the field, but…

  1. IS NATURAL BIRTH ESSENTIAL TO BE SAVED?

    According to some, men must be born of natural birth to enter the kingdom of God. There are many who declare that Jesus said you must be born of the water (amniotic fluid) to enter the kingdom of God. What did Jesus say?

    John 3:5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

    Was Jesus saying you must be born of natural birth (amniotic fluid) to enter the kingdom of God? Of course not.

    Men do need to be born of the waters of baptism to enter the kingdom of God.

    On the Day of Pentecost (2:22-41) the apostle Peter preached Jesus as a miracle worker. Peter preached Jesus as both Lord and Christ. Peter told them that God raised Jesus from the dead. When the three thousand believed, they where told to repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins and that they would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. After the three thousand received Peter’s word they were baptized in water and added the the kingdom of God on earth, which is the church of Christ.
    Peter did not tell one soul that they had to be born of natural birth (amniotic fluid) to enter the kingdom of God. The church is the kingdom of God on earth. The requirements for entering the kingdom of God on earth are the same as for entering the eternal kingdom of God. You must be born of water and the Spirit.

    The new birth (Acts 2:38) Water baptism and the Holy Spirit.
    The new birth (Titus 3:5) Washing of regeneration (water baptism) and renewing of the Holy Spirit (born of the Spirit).
    The new birth (John 3:5) Born of water(water baptism), and born of the Spirit (the Holy Spirit).

    BEING BORN OF THE WATER OF NATURAL BIRTH (AMNIOTIC FLUID) IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

    (Scripture from. NKJV)
