HUMAN-DIVINE PARTNERSHIP

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

A Sunday school teacher pointed to a large plant in the room and asked her young students, “Who made those beautiful flowers grow?” A boy eagerly responded, “God did!” The teacher was pleased by the response, but before she had a chance to comment, another boy shouted, “But fertilizer sure helps!”

The second boy touched on the profound reality of the partnership between God and man in our development. Although God is the Creator, He expects us to procreate, or keep it going forward. He plants His Holy Spirit within us, but we must act on His promptings. There is a human-divine connection in God’s plan for our growth.

Paul understood this, and wrote, “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase” (1 Corinthians 3:6). Pray for a good harvest, but keep on hoeing.
