For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building. [Isa. 61:3.]” 1 Corinthians 3:9 AMP
The apostle Paul said we are joint promoters and laborers together with and for God.
The Word of God call us promoters and laborers. But it’s so amazing most Christians spend time promoting themselves(being selfish or carnal) instead of promoting the One Who paid the price for them and the One Who employed them to work with Him. If we take our task of great commission seriously as Co laborers with Jesus Christ our Lord, many lives in this world without Jesus Christ in their lives will be impacted and transform in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
When the Bible says we’re working with God you maybe thinking or I am something, so I must do something. That’s not what it meant. Philippians 2:13 makes it all clear. Our duty as working together with Him is to yield our vessels for Him to work through us.
[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.” Philippians 2:13 AMP
Be a yielding vessel for God’s work as a co-laborer with Him.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. I repent for not taking my task of carrying the great commission mandate seriously. Help me to learn to cooperate with you as a Co-laborer with you in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
