My pastor often says, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” All of us are smarter than any one of us. Synergy happens when 1 plus 1 equals 11. That’s why we hold fast to this forever lasting truth:
“Grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,
from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies,
according to the proper working of each individual part,
causes the growth of the body for the
building up of itself in love.”
What a beautiful picture of teamwork and purpose. Each of us are part of Christ’s body. Most of us not touching one another directly, yet being fitted and held together.
What may sound complex and overwhelming, can be simplified when we keep our eyes on Him.
- Remember Christ is the Head. Not you. Not me. Him!
- We are His body, the Church, beyond denominational, geographic, socio-economic, or ethnic boundaries.
- Each of us is an important part of His body with different gifts and passions, roles and goals.
- As much each of us is able, we are to work properly, heartily and honestly.
- Serve one another that we may serve others to the glory of God.
What happens when we are better together in Him?
- Christ’s body grows.
- There is a building up of itself in love.
- We grow.
There is no room for competition – only collaboration. Seek to be better together with others in Him!
