The who, the what, the how of Life, evangelism style
Are more important than we think, to make success worthwhile.
What if my who is less than all it really ought to be?
What if my what is unknowledgeable and barking up wrong tree?
The final, how is that my how would be pathetically lawful
So that congregations, the unsaved, would find it really awful.
My success may not be counted in all that I have won
But rather in the process of what Holy Spirit’s done.
One plants, one waters, one pulls out weeds.
Should one be more highly regarded because he harvests seeds?
Little I’s. That’s all we’ll ever be, at the feet of Jesus Lord
Our task to share his glory, that for all, his blood he poured.
What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. (1 Corinthians 3:5-7, NIV)
Prayer – Lord we confess that sometimes our hearts get jealous when others grow your kingdom. Help us see that we are all part of the process. In Christ. Amen
