    The Power of Teamwork

    Posted on Mar 7, 2019 12:00:00 AM


    1 Corinthians 12:7, "Each person is given something to do that shows who God is; everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits."


    ‘We' is always greater than me! We've all heard: "There's no ‘I' in team" or "Teamwork makes the dream work." Are they corny? Yes, but the message is quite profound! The idea of community preexisted before Creation. It's represented in the Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three in one and one in three, coequal in form, but unique in function. Created in God's image, we, too, are relational beings designed to work together as a T.E.A.M... Together Everyone Achieves  More ! God has gifted each of us to serve individual roles within his house, and the formula for team success is simple: a willingness to do anything and everything with excellence as we work to glorify God together. God hand-selected you on purpose, for a purpose within the church. He gifted you with unique abilities and talents meant to work in conjunction with others to form the body of Christ. Do this, and one day Jesus will look at you and say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." And that will be music to your ears!  


    Jesus said, "I've come not to be served, but to serve." Are you currently serving within God's house? If not, you can take the next step today by visiting us at FellowshipChurch.com. On the front lines or behind the scenes, we've got the perfect place for you!


    Dear Lord, thank you for giving me a life of purpose. Help me to be a great teammate and to pursue excellence in all I do to glorify you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
