Better Results

I read an article about a boy who was drowning and, after, was saved by a group of people.  And I want you to read this, if you have the time, before you read my blog:

Last month, we celebrated one of my friends’ birthday, Tim’s.  During our hang out in La Salle, we talked about strengths.  We told each other what type of person we see in each of us.  Some mentioned that this friend is much more like a supporter.  Others said that the other is more of an achiever.  And another was told that he is more of a futuristic guy.

Over the right side of the picture is Tim. The rest is us.

We all have different strengths and roles from each other.  And I’m guessing you have that too; you also have different strengths from others.  But just like a body, there are different body parts.  When worked together, these body parts perform with better results.  Similar to the “human chain” made in the beach to save the boy, they were all not the same.  There were supporters, an initiator, and a leader.  Yet, they managed to save him.

That’s what church is like.  It’s having relationship with the people who are not exactly like you but have the same goal as you have.  And so, we work together in unity.  At the end of the day, our drive in working together as a church is, really, Jesus.  He is the only One who can bind us together in spite of our differences.

“Human Chain” done in New Zealand

“From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

- Ephesians 4:16
