We Are On The Same Team
For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building. 1 Corinthians 3:9
Read 1 Corinthians Chapter 3:5-23
Too often in the body of Christ we lose sight of the goal. The goal is God and believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. Then why do we spend so much time forgetting why we do what we do? It's a pity when you think about it. Our true purpose is to please the heart of God by living lives that reflect renewed and converted hearts. All those who are true teammates win because in the end, God wins. Of course, the end as we know it is really the beginning of eternal life with Jesus Christ. Paul, like any good coach, reminds the team that all have a part in the body of Christ. Anyone who is not united will cause division and hinder the work of the entire team. We are at our best when we keep an eternal perspective and do our part in the body. Then we bring great glory to our heavenly Father. Heaven is cheering us onward, so let's not lose sight of our eternal goal.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for reminders like this one--to be team players.
