Planting, watering

1 Corinthians 3

So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.  -kjv

So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor.   -niv

So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. Now the one planting and the one watering are one in purpose, and each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.  -hcsb

Observation: The laborer will receive the reward according to his own labor and we cannot measure that labor with specific metrics because that work is the laborer’s own efforts mingling together with divine intervention because it is the Holy Spirit that cause a person to believe in Jesus. Thus, it is God who is going to decide on the extent of the rewards. Any comments from you guys?

  1. We know that Our Lord & Savior is in control of the entire world since he made it. Even in difficult days as we in America face currently when the future looks uncertain God is still and always will be on HIS throne looking down needing to speak only (1) word for change. As I see the terrible and stupid laws and decisions I see our president and congress make my God does not make a single mistake. That is the type of spirit or Living God I wish to worship and be on the side of. I believe 100% in Our Living God. I believe that 100% of the Bible is God inspired and every verse is valid and true. I wish and look forward to spending eternity in Heaven with MY Lord & God living forever with Christian people I have known and family members who are with the Lord this moment. We need to labor for Jesus and try to bring unbelievers to him.
