Team Work in Church

When Israel was going through the wilderness they fought against the Amalekites. In Exodus 17:13 the Bible says, “And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword” (KJV). In that fight Israel worked as a team in a more effective way. They were of one mind, one heart and one vision. Every person in Israel was strategically placed so as to deal with the problem that life had presented before them. As a team they dealt with problems bigger than what an individual could manage. This is what happens when we solve problems as a group. Members of a team must support each other in order to be successful.

When Israel fought the Amalekites the position for Joshua could only be taken by Joshua. Joshua could not be a Moses and Moses could not be a Joshua. Moses could not be Aaron and Aaron could not be Hur. You can not be anyone else, but yourself to defeat the forces that you and your people face. Church groups that work as a team will always be successful at dealing with big issues they confront when they work together for a common goal. This is all because God is part of the team. Israel defeated the Amalekites because they were joined together not only as men, but as a team with God. Since they worked with God, they were a more powerful force.

When you are a child of God you are in the body of Christ which is the church. In 1 Corinthians 12:27 the Bible says,”Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular” (KJV). When you are a child of God you are part of the body of Christ. You have the ability to contribute to the edification of the body of Christ. Every one in Christ has the grace to serve. We are a team and God is Jehovah Nissi. If you are part of a church fellowship, you can also be used by God because you are placed in that fellowship for a divine purpose. Do the will of God with all your strength.

As a co-worker with God you are part of the great work he is doing in reconciling people to himself. You are a might force and the Amalekites of your life will always be under your feet. In Romans 16:20 the Bible says, “And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly” (KJV). God is the one who fights for you. Victory is yours, in the name of Jesus Christ!
