God is concerned that we grow as a Church. There are many parables and teachings that show Jesus expects us to grow both numerically and spiritually.
God is interested in both the quantity and the quality of the Christian Church. Paul reminds us that we are all servants, and that it is God himself who brings about this growth, for He is the Lord of the harvest.
Yet graciously, God wants us, His Church to work together for the purpose of growth. It requires diligence, hard work as well as unity of purpose to produce a harvest.
We can best use our time cultivating the soil by using our gifts and planting the good seed of the Word of God.
Let’s pray that we will all be useful in God’s service!
1 Corinthians 3:9 “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”
