We become members of the church not by the way of joining asocial organization, but by being planted…It is a very significant matter to bea plant on God’s farm. There is no needon the farm for a teacher to instruct the plants. A plant does not need anyone to tell it whatto do or how to grow (Life Study of 1 Corinthians, Page 197).
Water is definitely a major concern on a farm. And one of the important points in this message is how as fellowplants on the farm, we are not only growing on God’s farm, but also helping towater our fellow brothers and sisters so that they can also grow. As Paul makes clear here, eventually what we grow on this farm is what we build with.
