Teams exist for a purpose. Marriages, families, businesses, and even church congregations, exist to achieve COMMON GOAL – not just to function as friendly social groups. Our goal as Christians is to develop the mind of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:5). Jesus said: “I and My father are one” (John 10:30). Jesus and His Father are focused on the same goal – the salvation of mankind.
What does it take to be part of the TEAM? 1 Peter 4:8-10 says, “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
Teamwork really involves joint action and coordinated effort. Each person must be willing to contribute skills and resources to achieve the desired goal. Start setting a goal of becoming a better team player. Examine yourself and determine on what qualities you need to work.
