Throughout Scripture, teams played a very important role in accomplishing God’s plan and purpose. Moses was given Joshua. Joshua was given Caleb. Ruth was given Naomi. David was given Jonathan, and Peter was given John.
One of the most important team qualities since the coming of the Spirit is being likeminded in the gospel. While individuals may have personality differences, those qualities that are going to affect the outcome of your work together must align with God’s purpose for the team.
“Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour” (Acts 3:1). They each had the same objective; prayer. They were carrying on one of the most essential habits of the Church that started in Chapter One; prayer (1:14; 2:42). Because they were unified in this important habit of the Church, they had a unified attitude toward a lame man begging for money. Again, we see a unified answer to this man which resulted in unified worship.
How is this working out in your church or ministry? Has God given you a team member to work with so your labor for the Lord is more effective? If you have a team member(s), what is the foundation of your work? Is it biblically based? Are you able to pray together through difficult times and arrive at a Spirit guided path toward fruitfulness?
