Sharing our faith- by Roger Roark

text - 1 Cor. 3:6-9 (nlt ) and 2nd Kings 7:3-9

1 Cor. 3:6-9

My job was to plant the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God, not we, who made it grow. [7] The ones who do the planting or watering aren’t important, but God is important because he is the one who makes the seed grow. [8] The one who plants and the one who waters work as a team with the same purpose. Yet they will be rewarded individually, according to their own hard work. [9] We work together as partners who belong to God. You are God’s field, God’s building—not ours.

It is our job to sow the seed, and God’s job to make them grow.

. The message is still the same. The message is the Lord Jesus Christ. Our delivery has changed.

. We have seen a lot of changes over the last 100 years.

1. We have come from mail being delivered by pony express on horses, to regular mail delivered by cars, to airmail delivered by jet aircraft, to email.

- A letter that used to take days to be delivered , can now be sent electronically in seconds.

-That messages hasn’t been watered down. The message is still, Jesus loves me, and HE died for me, but the delivery has changed.

. Let me ask you a question. What is worse than being lost? The answer is, being lost and no one looking for you.

( illustration ) There was a young barber who had been to a revival all week, and he was determined to wittness to people that he came in contact with.

He was a barber, and he prayed and promised the Lord that he would wittness to everyone who came into his barber shop.

The first man to come in was huge. He was about 6 feet 4, and weighed about 250 lbs.

The young barber said," well, I will let him go, and I will wittness to the next one who comes in.

This went on all day, he would make excuses as to why he didn’t wittness to them.

Finally, he saw that it was almost closing time, and his last customer came in and sat down in the barber chair.

The young barber was giving him a shave, and had the razor in his hand.

He walked around in front of the man, and blurted out , "Are you ready to meet God.?

. We work together as partners

1 Cor. 12:4-7 (nlt)

Now there are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but it is the same Holy Spirit who is the source of them all. [5] There are different kinds of service in the church, but it is the same Lord we are serving. [6] There are different ways God works in our lives, but it is the same God who does the work through all of us. [7] A spiritual gift is given to each of us as a means of helping the entire church.

It is our job to follow Jesus, and to do as Jesus did.

The world out there are watching every move we make, as Christians. The want to see if we practice what we preach.

Jesus, in His earthly ministry, went around doing deeds of kindness.

He fed the hungry, He healed the sick, He had compassion. He cared.

When we do deeds of kindness, we are being like Jesus.

Jesus said " whatever you have done to the least of these, you have done to me.

Acts 10:38

And no doubt you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the Devil, for God was with him.
