Don’t Get It Twisted!
“He who plants, and he who waters are one in purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.” 1 Corinthians 3:8
Preaching the gospel is not only about standing on the pulpit and preaching, or being a preacher. It’s about being a vessel of honor who can speak the truth to people about their faith through any form of communication to those who were oppressed by the oppressor. When we are called to preach the gospel, we must first know that our calling is not only for our own sake but also for the benefit of others.
The gospel is not something that we should take lightly. When we send out the devotion to you, and you share it with others, it means you are also preaching the gospel to them as well to help them see Jesus Christ in their lives. Remember, we wrote the devotion, and you shared it with others through any medium; it was God who inspired and made a new heart.
1 Corinthians 3:5-6 (Paul) says, “What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, as the Lord has assigned to each role. I planted the seed, and Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.”
It does not matter your denomination, title, or position in the church or how much money you have, but if you can save a soul through any means and live a life of faith in Christ, an angel will rejoice on your behalf and then God will be glorified. Therefore, it does not matter who writes the devotion, who shares it with you, or whom you share it with but God who makes things work.
Let us work together in this way: We must do all that is necessary to bring about the good news of Jesus Christ to the world. We must do so by working together as one body and one spirit. Psalm 90:17 says, “May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish for us the work of our hands–establish the work of our hands!”
