Why should I witness if no one accepts Christ?

I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:6-9
            Paul in 1 Corinthians reminds us of a very important point—an individual’s salvation is a group effort.
            One person plants the seed of interest in one’s heart, while another comes and waters it, while another shows up to harvest it, then even another can disciple and sustain that salvation.
            So you may be a quiet example of Jesus Christ in someone’s life (plants), then maybe that person reads a book about Jesus by an author (waters) while a pastor seals the deal during a sermon (harvest) and a small group leader maintains the relationship with Christ through weekly studies (growth). 
            Don’t be discouraged.  You may not see someone pray the prayer, but you were an integral part in the process.
