PRAISE AND WORSHIP


MESSAGE:

In today's Fire Scripture, the Bible mentions vividly the importance of our relationship one to another in the body of Christ. Verse 27 of it says, "Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular." We are one body different parts functioning as eyes, ears, noses, feet, hands, yet all towards unity of purpose. An organ of the body, the foot cannot say because I am not the hand, or I am not the body, then I cannot work with others. Such attitudes will reduce the effectiveness of others and thus affect the entire body. That is why the issue of teamwork is very important. God created us to bear one another's burden and remain in good and loving relationship with each other.


Teamwork is all about different parts of the body working together to benefit the whole. Everyone is uniquely different and with personal strengths and weaknesses. When the parts are used properly, a team can be more capable, more efficient and achieve greater overall success than an individual working alone. The power of teamwork can be seen in nature with migration of geese. As the seasons change, large flocks of geese migrate by flying thousands of kilometres to their destination. These flocks contain hundreds of birds, each with limited capabilities to go the distance alone. However, if an individual bird decides to make this long journey by itself, in most cases it would undoubtedly fail. Contrarily, when all the birds work together as a flock, as a team, they reach their goal, arriving at their final destination.


As we can see further in 1 Corinthians 12, the Bible says that the body is one and hath many members, and all are members of one body, so also are we, as members of one Body which is Christ. Hence there should be no schism in the body, rather members should have the same mind, caring for one another. I pray that the Lord will give you the grace to be a great team worker, in Jesus' name.
