What if the missing ingredient for changing the world is teamwork? “When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action” (Matthew 18:19 MSG). This is an astounding promise!
The Jerusalem church found a way to work together. They found common ground in the death, the burial, and the resurrection of Christ. Because they did, lives were changed. As you and I work together, the same will happen. The congregation is a microcosm of God’s plan. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. And when we do… “God’s great blessing was upon them all. There were no needy people among them” (Acts 4:33–34). Those who suffer belong to all of us. And if all of us respond, there is hope.
