God’s Dream Team

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus.” Romans 15:5 (NIV)

One in spirit, one in purpose –  the  picture of  God’s people united in serving.  Leaving selfish ambition behind; committed to doing what’s in the best interest of everyone.  It was God’s design – His “Dream Team” operating in one accord strengthened by the unbroken cords of love.  God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit had no problem functioning with one agenda – the trio created the world and redeemed the lost.

Wonder what we could accomplish in our families and in our churches if we left our hidden agendas behind?  Working together, we build rather than destroy.  Working as one, we love large rather than seek selfish pursuits.  Working in unity, we glorify the Father rather than glorify ourselves.

So where does unity start?  It starts with being One with our Creator.  Submitting to His agenda and His purposes for our lives.  It involves faithfully surrendering to God’s best.  It encompasses seeing life from God’s perspective rather than our own.  It stretches us to love big with open arms, rather than hold back grace for the sake of being right.

Hidden agendas will always rise to the surface unless we lay them down at the foot of the cross. It’s a hard cup to swallow, but we will never experience unity in the church until we allow it to invade our personal space. If we want to join God’s “Dream Team” then we would be wise to leave disunity behind in exchange for an unbroken cord of love.

“Father, rid us of self-reliance and teach us to be One in mind, heart and spirit.”

For His Glory
