SCRIPTURE

1 Corinthians 3:1-9

OBSERVATION

· They are spiritual infants
· They were only able to handle milk
· Jealousy and strife are indicators of the spiritual immaturity
· Each of us has a task, but anyone who is successful at their task is nothing for it is God who makes the work happen

APPLICATION

· I need to make sure that approach God’s work humbly, so I don’t think that I am ready before I am really ready, lest my work be burned up in the fire.
· My spiritual work seems to be made manifest in other people, which means I need to invest my time in others in a productive, lasting way.
· Meanwhile, the work that is accomplished is not by my own doing, rather God’s doing; for nothing I do is outside the simple task assigned to me.

PRAYER

Dear Father, It is only because You have loved me, and only because You are holy that You have allowed me to work in Your fields. Please teach me to see how frequently I step foot in those fields and how often there are opportunities to plant and water seeds. I do believe that we are assigned tasks and I pray, Lord, that You will teach me to recognize opportunities to share Your Gospel and disciple Your followers. I pray that all of Your students will not be the type of people who only accept milk, but grow in such a way that they can eat meat and grow strong!
