The world system is set up in a way that tries to draw us away from one another. It speaks of maturity as being independent of one another. But the Word of God has something different to say. Victory is experienced by God’s army as each soldier marches and co-labors together, and it is individually experienced only as it is corporately applied through every joint supplying its portion (2). “We are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us” (Romans 8:37, Amplified). Together, as a consecrated, devoted army, we experience His victory.
Even Moses, the great and wonderful prophet of God, needed Aaron and Hur to hold up his hands (3). Without his team, he was weak, frail and inadequate. He needed them to supply strength in his weakness, and through their supply the enemy was conquered. In Nehemiah, we see that many men were used to build the wall; they worked together as a team. Team concept was their motto. Alone it would have been impossible to build, but together it was easy. It was a joy to work as a team and manifest God’s power.
“So we, numerous as we are, are one body in Christ, the Messiah, and individually we are parts one of another – mutually dependent on one another” (Romans 12:5, Amplified).
