: Your Part

September 6, 2020

Pastor Ashlee Adkins continues our series "inside OUT."

Paul has a way of delivering humble pie through his letters. And he doesn’t disappoint in the first letter to the Corinthians either. Paul emphasizes to the church that he and Apollos, pastors and leaders in the foundation and growth of the church, were nothing, simply servants. Servants and instruments of the great someone, God the grower and giver of life.

While Paul is overemphasizing the unimportance of he and Apollo’s roles, he does impress the importance of each person having a part in the great kingdom work. And while everyone is born with different talents and gifts, we all have the same purpose – to reflect God and share the good news. And we cannot do that work, we cannot point or bring glory to God, without God. He is the one already doing the work, and we simply join him to do our part. Hallelujah.

Passage: I Corinthians 3:5-9
