Who Gives The Increase?

A little reminder

1 Corinthians 3:5-15 (NKJV)

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.

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

As I’ve meditated on this Word last October 2020, it can be applied in everything we do as an army of God. It can be applied in discipleship-making, in our daily work, or even in our own relationship with God and in everything we do.

It is God alone who does the increase in everything we do and only Jesus Christ can transform someone’s life. All we have to do is to obey God’s voice being yielded by the Holy Spirit.

So, let’s work in everything according to God’s will because there will be a day that God will test each one’s work.

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV)
