Working Together

Combined effort

As the crew removed a section of concrete, three workers used jackhammers, one a pickax, while one cut rebar. Teamwork.

The Pyramids, the Panama Canal, and the moon landings were all team efforts.

Teamwork began with God.

The family—His idea—is a team if there ever was one, with each member assigned a vital role.

Divine/human synergism

The church is another of God’s team ideas.

Jesus both died for the church and serves as its glorious Head, empowering each member.

“. . . the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:18, emphasis added).

Teamwork! Are you on God’s team—doing your part?
