The Same Team

September 15, 2019

“We’re all on the same team,” I said not long ago in a Bible Study with people from different churches and denominations.

It’s a line I’ve used for a long time. It says the same thing as our old friend St. Paul does in 1st Corinthians 12

Your body has many parts — limbs, organs, cells — but no matter how many parts you can name, you’re still one body.

It’s exactly the same with Christ.

The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together as a church: every part dependent on every other part.

— At that Bible Study, when I said, “We’re all on the same team,” an 81-year-old chimed in with, “We just play different positions.”

Amen!

And wow I’m thankful for that, aren’t you?
