One of the great things about the Lord’s church is that it is made up of such a diverse group of individuals. Each member brings unique personalities, gifts, and talents into the fold. Some have abilities to do one thing well, and others have different abilities to do other things well.

Now, each of us could work on our own, and we could still get a lot of good things done in the name of the Lord, but it is God’s design that we pool our efforts and resources. It is when we work together that much more can be accomplished than individual endeavors.

This is what Paul had in mind when he wrote to the Christians at Ephesus that “the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” (Eph. 4:16).

It is God’s desire that the “whole body” be involved in church projects and activities. Every part needs to do their share for success. With whatever challenges our eldership decides for this congregation, let’s get on board and let’s work together!
