Join God’s Team!

When the Olympic Games are held, people from many different countries come to watch the athletes representing their country. People who cannot attend watch the events on television. These teams show us how important it is for people to work together.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul encouraged the Christians in Philippi. In verse 27b Paul said, “I will know that you stand together with the same purpose and that you work together like a team to help others believe the Good News.”
When Jesus was on earth, He chose a team of twelve men to carry on His work. Jesus trained them to go out and teach about Him. Today the church is a team, too. God wants everyone to be part of His team.
As a member of God’s team, we are not playing a game or trying to win a gold medal. We are working to bring lost people to Jesus. Be a part of God’s team today.
