Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 3:1-17 (day six)

“For we are God’s fellow workers.” -Paul, 1 Corinthians 3:9

Isn’t that statement amazing? Paul was referring to himself and Apollos, as an attempt to persuade the Corinthian church to repent of their divisiveness. But the simple truth of that statement is astounding; that God would include them AND us in the work he is doing.

It reminds me of the time Jesus told the disciples, “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from the Father I have told you.” (John 15:15) We are friends with God; we are co-workers.

The journey of the Christian is to grow into those truths. Are you?
