Dear partner in Ministry,

In 1 Corinthians 3:9 Paul says “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building”. The context of this verse reveals that reaching people is God’s work and Paul reminds us that God can use various instruments in order to gather a harvest for His Kingdom.

He uses two analogies – planting and building. Some plant, others water and others reap, but the harvest belongs to the Lord. In the building metaphor he explains that there are various workers involved in building but that each should build with care (:10) ensuring that all the building is founded on the cornerstone Christ Jesus.

Before we sow (witness) we should take time to prepare the soil by increased prayer before engaging a person; taking time to build sincere and caring relationships; showing unconditional love and acceptance even when rejected; and sharing the good news of the Gospel in a sensitive and relevant way. God’s Word never changes, but how we witness can affect the outcome of the seed sown.

How do we see our world and the people of the world? I must admit that at times I feel like the Disciples and say Lord “rain down fire in your wrath”, when faced with all the injustice, deception, greed and the rottenness of humanity. But not so with Jesus.

John 17 is known as the “High Priestly Prayer of Jesus”. In verse 1, Jesus used two words that should shape our world and life view as Christians. These words are especially of relevance as we will soon remember the birth of our Saviour. The words are “heaven” and “Father”.
