Often when you hear people in the military share about their experience, they say that the most important thing was the person on their right and the person on their left. This past Sunday we began our new series by talking about your crew. Who’s on your crew? Click on the image above to watch the lesson.
As an agent of God on a mission from God, you are called to be part of a dream team. The dream team always includes the Holy Spirit, you, and others. You were made to be on a dream team (probably multiple dream teams). My marriage is a dream team of Holy Spirit, me, and Sako. The Wellspring Board is a dream team of Holy Spirit, me, Sako, Jill, Ben, Melody, Darren, Stephanie, and Zach. Wellspring is a dream team in which every member is submitted to the Holy Spirit and to one another and each member is a valuable part of the whole. The church only has one head and that head is Jesus Christ. If all of us come into alignment under the headship of Jesus and seek His Kingdom, His way, and His intentions above our own, He will lead us in unity. If we want to have the mind of Christ, we have to let Christ be the head on His body, the Commanding Officer of this vessel.
I love the dream team because it only works by the Holy Spirit. Without the Spirit, human groups naturally fall into politics, manipulation, pride, division, and ultimately a strong leader rises to enforce subjugation to his or her way. The dream team only works if we trust God’s faithfulness and His clear guidance and remain submitted to the Spirit and to one another. This only work’s in a Father-focused family of trust — the vision of Wellspring.
Join us this next Sunday as we continue our series by looking more closely at the mission. What is our present mission? What kind of growth and strength will the mission require of us? Join us Sunday as we continue the conversation together.
“During those dark times, it was not safe to travel. Problems troubled the people of every land. Nation fought against nation, and city against city, for God was troubling them with every kind of problem. But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded.” – 2 Chronicles 15:5-7 [New Living Translation]
His love is better than life!
