There is an “I” in team... It’s just not in the word, but in the work. As in, I need to pull my weight, do my part, doing what it takes to reach shared objectives, common goals. For if I don’t do as I should, I could be the very reason the team falls short of its potential.
We need to “I” as in identify those working with us in need of a little something extra from us as in a listening ear, a word of encouragement, a word of challenge, or just a helping hand to help them carry their load which may have become hard and heavy to bear.
We need to “I” as in install the right people in the right positions by helping the members of the team identify the right place for which to serve to get the most out of the gifts instilled within them to be most helpful to the success of the team. The wrong people in the wrong spot will bring you the wrong results.
We need to “I” as in invite and include all members of the team to take ownership of efforts to achieve goals, sacrificing where necessary, doing more when it calls for it, for Together Everyone Achieves More.
We need “I” as insight, to be sure we are on the right team. Not every profession or partnership is for me, for everyone does not share my values and views and not all will celebrate with me, my victory. I roll with Team Jesus.
HE is the Captain of my Salvation, my joy, my example, and my everything. HE, being the Captain made the supreme sacrifice, taking HIS cross dying to pay for all our sin. Now HE invites all members of HIS team to deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow HIM daily.
There is no “I” in the word TEAM, but it’s in the work. I once was blind, but the Lord worked on me, worked in me, worked with me and HE has given me eyes to see—The “I” in TEAM…
I Owe Jesus
Romans 15:1. We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens… Galatians 6:5 For every man shall bear his own burden.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
