Under Gods Command

PAUL ADDRESSES CHURCH PROBLEMS (1:1-6:20)

1 Corinthians 03:06 I planted the seed, Apllos watered it, but God made it grow.

Paul planted the seed of the gospel message in people’s hearts. He was a missionary pioneer; he brought the message of salvation. Apollos’s role was to water to help the believers grow stronger in the faith. Paul founded the church in Corinth, and Apollos built on that foundation. Tragically, the believers in Corinth had split into factions, pledging loyalty to different teachers. After the preachers’ work is completed, God keeps on making Christians grow.

Lets Bring it Home: Our leaders should certainly be respected but we should never place them on pedestals that create barriers between people or set them up as substitute for Christ.
