Life is messy. Church life is messy. Every church has problems, because every church is made up of people. But God has called His people to come together to live life alongside each other and to encourage and carry each other, even amid difficult and challenging circumstances. The Apostle Paul planted a church in Corinth, Greece, and it very quickly became a church that dealt with many problems. They lacked maturity and wisdom, despite being a very gifted church. 1 Corinthians is a fatherly challenge and guide to them to help them get back on track and grow in the wisdom they need.

In this sermon, Paul tells the Corinthians that God loves using human weaknesses for His glory. When we feel unequipped, untalented, or that our contribution to the world is meaningless or weak, we are in the perfect position for God to be able to use us in ways that will amaze us. We should not expect instant growth, but simply to do the faithful work of a farmer, going out each and every day, watering, and trusting that God is at work under the surface.
