GROWING THE SEED OF TRUTH IN WEEDED GROUNDS

(A reflection on the challenges confronting the early church at Corinth)

Weeds is defined as; Plant considered undesirable, unattractive, or troublesome, especially one that grows where it is not wanted and often grows or spread fast or takes the place of desired plants.

We live in present times surrounded by growing weeds of undesirable, burdensome, and destructive new ideas, principles, regulations, behaviors and practices that are becoming a norm; in fact, some of these have become a lifestyle of many. Yet for those found by Christ, were entrusted the seed of truth to make it grow. The challenge is enormous, the field is so large, but the opportunity is limitless. In Christ, we can be in one mind working together for same purpose and same hope. The hope that the seed He entrusted us will grow even in the midst of the weeds.

1 Corinthians 3:7-9 & 16-7 (NLT)

(7) It is not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What's important is that God makes the seed grow. (8) The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. (9) For we are both God's workers. And you are God's field. You are God's building.

(16)Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and the Spirit of God lives in you? (17)God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.

Yes! God entrusted us the seed of truth and He expect us to help it grow. So come fellowship with us this coming Sunday, November 16, 2014, and together we will discover God's desire for us to grow in our spiritual walk with Jesus Christ our one and only cornerstone. Together we will learn and understand the trials and problems that confronted the early church in Corinth. And from those experiences they encountered, together we will discover Apostle Paul's prescriptions for Spiritual Maturity. You will be amazed how God desire for us to grow in our relationship with Him. One of the things I discover is that; Remaining in spiritual immaturity is depriving oneself of greater opportunities and better blessings from God. Come and join us this coming Sunday, and together we will learn the scriptural treasures which I consider " The seven capsules for spiritual health from the pharmacy of 1 Corinthians 3:5-23.

Don't you know that God is an expert Human Resources Management Practitioner? He set straight forward policies, closely monitor work performances, provide the most extensive training and development for leadership and personal growth, provides the most comprehensive securities, assurances and a lifetime insurance coverage. He provides benefits that last for eternity. One of the many policies He set for work performance assessment review is found in 1 Corinthians 3:12-15;"Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials--gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person's work has any value.If the work survives, the builder will receive a reward. But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss?" wow! This performance policy standard is so straight forward and in fact too stringent. I used to be an HR practitioner, and I know how employees complaint about performance policies that were so stringent yet they could not find corresponding benefits attached to it. But in God's performance policy standard, the corresponding benefits are so comprehensive, exclusive, and easily available to all. God has provided his people insurance coverage benefit that is not just for a life time, but for eternity. An insurance coverage with premium He already completely paid in the cross. God expect His people to perform. Like most of us who work in companies,offices, or schools our employers or teachers expect as to perform and evaluate our performances. What is amazing about Him is that He does not just sit and wait while you perform. He will be with you all the time, helping you and protecting you as you perform and face the challenges of life. In 1 Corinthians 3:17; it says"God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple". Wow! we are not only God's people or workers. We are His temple, and not just any ordinary temple, but holy. Is it not amazing that the moment you accepted Christ you are instantly promoted and given the title as "holy" and guaranteed with comprehensive security and insurance coverage for eternity? Another bonus assurance is found in Psalms 91:9-11,14-16; "If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go. The Lord says, "I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer. I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation." These are just few of the many good things we learned from His words. So, come and join us in our fellowship, and together we will discover more things, explore more benefits that are freely available from His words.
