1 Corinthians 3:6-7
6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God caused it to grow. 7 So neither the one who plants counts for anything, nor the one who waters, but God who causes the growth.
Is my spirit capable of gaining strength and growth?
Is this indispensable … to mature in spiritual life?
How then can we measure …how will we know?
Is it by the fruit we bear … the spiritual fruit of Life?
How often don’t we sense that “our” spirit is not strong?
Not strong enough it seems … to control the body and soul.
Is it not to wonder in such … or we truly belong
in the hall of faith … which is ultimately our goal?
When my soul is stimulated and my body is weak
and my stubborn will … a hindrance to doing right.
Confused then I stumble on … acting to see clearly
with undisciplined emotion doing the out of sight.
“When I am weak, then I am strong”, wrote the beloved apostle.
How does that fit in my life … unless I grow in spirit?
So this is no excuse and not worth the hassle
unless I hunger for righteousness and do such in true merit.
