Seasons--Watering

1 Corinthians 3:5-6   “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.”

Big Question—What kinds of things will make spiritual seeds grow?

3 Ways to Water the Seeds in Your Life

1.     The Word of God.

Psalm 1:2-3 “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever he does shall prosper.”

John 6:63  “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”

2.     Faithful obedience.

Luke 16:10a  “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much…”

3.     The Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:1-2  There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”

Job 34:14-15  “If He should set His heart on it, if He should gather to Himself His Spirit and His breath, 15 All flesh would perish together, and man would return to dust.”

Luke 1:35  “And the angel answered and said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.’”

Wherever and whenever the Holy Spirit comes, He gives creative life.

What habits result in being increasingly filled with the Spirit?
1.     Praise and worship
2.     Prayer
3.     God’s Word


Bottom Line:  How do you need to water the seeds you have planted?
