Woods: prayer makes fellow laborers

Sunday, July 8, 2018
    The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.
    —1 Corinthians 3:8-9 (NIV)
    The history of our student movement [Inter-Varsity] has demonstrated that a prayer-less chapter is a fruitless chapter. Prayer spells all the difference between working for God in our own strength and wisdom or being fellow laborers together with Him in the work that He is seeking to do in the university.
    ... C. Stacey Woods, The Growth of a Work of God, Downers Grove, Ill.: Inter-varsity Press, 1978, p. 99 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 3:8-11; Luke 18:1; Rom. 12:12; Eph. 6:18; Col. 4:2; 1 Thess. 5:17; 1 Pet. 4:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my work is nothing unless You lead it.
