TOPIC: Purpose and Teamwork
"On the contrary, they recognized that I had been
entrusted with the task of preaching the gospel
to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been
to the circumcised." - Galatians 2:7.
It is important that you know your purpose so you can tell others what you do best. It's just as important to know the purpose of others, so you can know where their shoulders are broadest, so to speak, and where you can rely on them the most. Paul knew Peter's purpose. Peter knew Paul's. The other apostles knew Peter's and Paul's. That is why the early church grew, for everyone functioned in their purpose and gifts and God empowered them to be successful. Do you know your purpose? Can you describe the purpose of those with whom you work, live, and/or minister?
Lord, I need clarity of purpose so I can know what I have to offer my family, team and church. I need the same kind of clarity to know the purpose of my spouse, children, co-workers and team members. Make every team I am part of a well-oiled machine that can do great things for You in the power of purpose.
