Apollos Watered, 1 Corinthians 3:6-9

Song and movie based on scripture

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you have tried to share your faith,
 and folks just mock and turn away;
when you've responded to their plight,
 lent a hand and tried to guide;
still their hearts are cold and hard,
and they don't want to trust the Lord,
turn to God's word for our example;
Paul planted, Apollos watered.
~
Apollos watered......for the Lord,
sprinkling grace on fallen man.
As labourers together,
we're fulfilling our Father's plan.
~
When seeds of faith are cast abroad,
 they often fall on dry, parched ground,
and we don't seem to see results
 of our labour for the Lord.
But we're called to do our part,
in cultivating barren hearts.
We bring the water like Apollos,
and trust God to give the increase.
~
Apollos watered......for the Lord,
sprinkling grace on fallen man.
As labourers together,
we're fulfilling our Father's plan.
~
We gladly bear the water....to the thirsting souls of man.

This song was written for a movie my son was making. The title is taken from: 
1 Corinthians 3:6-9 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

 Unfortunately, the movie was never completed. He has all of the footage, but getting a music score proved difficult! There is a trailer to give you an idea of what the movie was about. (Please ignore spelling mistakes in the captions!)
