Team Work is our model.
We are created to be together to work together as one to support one another to be for another that bit that they are not and for them to support us and be that missing bit that we are not.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses but together, as a team we are whole and strong.
We can be the hope when another is flagging. They can be the encourager when we feel we fail.
Each of us providing a small function move an enormous force that engages increasing parts and creates a wonder to behold.
It is the success story of all engineering, every machine, every structure, every establishment, every movement, every nation.
No one part, however uniquely and beautifully designed and made can fulfil all needs and purposes but as a part of a multi it is of equal value to and essential for its fulfilment.
If we all have a part to play resilience, perseverance, well maintained and cherished is also part of that wellbeing and success.
The critical importance of each integral part must be valued and it too know what its value is.
The significance of letting the smallest cog in a machine get lost or damaged has massive ramifications in the whole process of all the parts and functions.
To accept that it may get tough and a struggle at times but so worth persevering to maintain production for everyone’s benefit motivates the sacrifice at times and the desire to overcome fatigue or hardship.
Setting up triggers for alarms to be watchful for creates spaces to intervene and get assistance before a break down and for the grace to know dependence on others when pride might favour independence and not reliance.
There is profound worth and discovery in discovering the help of others and of God.
The grace of accepting gifts and blessing with gratitude and humility far out ways the pride to not.
Everyone has a part to play. As do you. As do I.
Faith is centre stage.
Our faith in Jesus, the sacrifice He made, the part He played.
Makes us the co-partner in the kingdom in the church, in God’s plan.
Together we make the unstoppable force that wins.
The illustration shows many body parts but not unified into the perfect creation of God’s design. When transformed into what He designed and each part taking on its perfect role in the team it provides the perfect body to co-partner and bring light to push darkness back.
Two Scriptures that come to mind:
“Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and he now declares us flawless in his eyes. This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us. Our faith guarantees us permanent access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory! But that’s not all! Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope. And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us! For when the time was right, the Anointed One came and died to demonstrate his love for sinners who were entirely helpless, weak, and powerless to save themselves.”
Romans 5:1-6 TPT
“Just as the human body is one, though it has many parts that together form one body, so too is Christ. For by one Spirit we all were immersed and mingled into one single body. And no matter our status—whether we are Jews or non-Jews, oppressed or free—we are all privileged to drink deeply of the same Holy Spirit. In fact, the human body is not one single part but rather many parts mingled into one. So if the foot were to say, “Since I’m not a hand, I’m not a part of the body,” it’s forgetting that it is still a vital part of the body. And if the ear were to say, “Since I’m not an eye, I’m not really a part of the body,” it’s forgetting that it is still an important part of the body. Think of it this way. If the whole body were just an eyeball, how could it hear sounds? And if the whole body were just an ear, how could it smell different fragrances? But God has carefully designed each member and placed it in the body to function as he desires. A diversity is required, for if the body consisted of one single part, there wouldn’t be a body at all! So now we see that there are many differing parts and functions, but one body.”1 Corinthians 12:12-20 TPT
