Daily Reading – Psalms 89 / 1 Corinthians 3
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
1 Corinthians 3:6-7 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
I’ll never forget Jim. Jim was a man I had the privilege of leading to the Lord. He was older and had been around churches longer than I had. However, for whatever reason, God used something I said to shine a light into Jim’s heart and illuminate the Gospel. Often in services where we asked for testimonies, Jim would pop up and say something like “I am so glad I’m saved and thank Pastor for saving me.” I would continually remind him I didn’t do it, God saved Him. He would say, “I know that, but you know what I mean.”
What a joy to be used by God to help someone’s life change forever. However we need never lose sight of who is truly doing the saving. Only God can save a soul.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
“Who gives the increase?”
