The best way to stop a team from winning is to cause divisions among them. Get them arguing about things that don’t really matter, so they lose sight of what actually matters.
In Romans 15, the Apostle Paul calls Christians to accept one another as Christ accepted you in order to bring praise to God.
He urges us to look to Jesus Christ as the example of putting aside our own interests and preferences for the sake of others, for the unity of the team.
When we look at how Christ accepted us – just as we are – we can more easily accept one another and so are back on track for the main game.
The main game is proclaiming Christ to the ends of the earth. That’s the exciting plan God foretold to his people in ancient times – that people from among all nations would be gathered to praise him – and invites us to be part of right now.
So let’s accept one another and be united, to the praise of God, so that we can proclaim Jesus Christ to the world around us… starting right here in Walgett!
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
