Every One Required to Be a Colaborer With God
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. 1 Corinthians 3:9.
If you could only realize that the God of heaven takes those who have been rebels against His government, and says to them, You may be laborers together with Me, you would this day consecrate yourselves wholly to Him.... Is it not wonderful that we can receive the rich current of grace from the Deity, and work in harmony with Him? What does the Deity want with us—poor, weak, and feeble as we are? What can He do with us?—Everything, if we are willing to surrender all.1The Youth's Instructor, May 3, 1900.
When God called me in my very childhood to work for Him, I used to think, What can I do? God says, Do My bidding. This is all that any of us need do. I want to tell you what each of you, from the oldest to the youngest, can do: You can co-operate with God, ... and with one another.... You will not study how to please yourself. You will realize that you are responsible for the influence you exert....
“We are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry.” Think of it! He is seeking to work the mind, just as you work the land. He is trying to sow seed that will bear fruit to His glory. “Ye are God's building.” But He does not build without any care for you.2The Youth's Instructor, May 3, 1900.
