Stages of Harvesting

The following are my notes of Dr. Ewart’s lecture at SEBTS.

1. Sowing

Sowing pictures scattering seed over a large area.

2. Planting

Planting pictures intentional focus in a target area.

3. Watering

Watering is aimed at growth and development.

4. Reaping

Reaping is gathering of the fruit.

What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:5-9)
