Often when we Christians share our faith, we don’t always have the grace of the opportunity of seeing the fruits of our labours. But we can find hope and joy in the fact that it is not us, but that it is the Lord who gives the growth. The Lord ensures that his Word will not fall empty to the ground.
The scripture says (1 Corinthians 3:5-9):
5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.
The following video, originally entitled, ‘I Got Off At George Street’, is a beautiful story of one man’s simple, faithful Christian witness, one that bore much fruit, despite his having no knowledge of the fact. I find it superbly encouraging.
