The Team

We are all on the same team - God's team - working together for the common good of the Kingdom. We need each other, because we all have different roles to fill. Together we can make a stronger Kingdom impact. How to serve? Honor God with your service. Strive for excellence in the person God has made you, and travel the path that brings blessings to others.

Amen

The Servants

By God's design the church is to be filled with servants. In Acts 6 we see there was a need for servants to take some of the workload off the church elders. What do these Biblical servants look like? They are men of good repuation and filled with integrity; men who are willing to look beyond their own interests and serve others; and men who are willing to accept oversight over Kingdom tasks. God's vision is that His church would grow and we all have a role to play.

The Leaders

God's design for church leaders is that they must follow before leading. Leaders are charged to feed God's church and it's important to lead by example. Jesus demonstrated humble leadership by washing the disciples' feet. The church that is led by God will look like God because we are to elevate Jesus, not ourselves.

The Head

Jesus is the Head of the church and when we try to take control we get in trouble. We are created to be connected to the Head, but if we break that connection we don't grow and wander from the path God has for us. Jesus is our adhesive in broken times. He wants to mend us, but we have to allow Him. Our attachment to the Head brings harmony to the body. We each have different roles to play, but we have a common goal and a common authority.

What Will You Do With Jesus This Year?

What are your New Year's resolutions - lose weight, eat better, exercise, get on a budget? Our relationship with Jesus should be at the top of the list. First, we must believe in Jesus. He is the risen Savior who saves us from our sins. Then look to Jesus and focus on Him. We can also learn from Jesus as we become more like Him. And we can worship Jesus because as believers we not only know who we are, we know where we're going.

Amen
