Working Together, We Can Accomplish More

In Ephesians 2:10 it says, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (NIV)

God put me on Earth to do a certain work that only I can do. Ephesians 2:10 says that I was “created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for me to do” (NIV). But God didn’t plan for me to do that work alone. I need people to work with me.  

You know the feeling you get when you do too much work on your own. You get exhausted and burned out and discouraged. You might even think about giving up! Why? Because you’re trying to do your work alone, and God never meant for it to be that way

The Bible says, “Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together” (Ecclesiastes 4:9 NCV). When I work with others as a team, I get so much more done. Plus, having good teammates work alongside me is a whole lot more fun and less tiring

Picture this: Each of us is like a snowflake. On our own, we can’t make a big difference. But when one snowflake sticks with a lot of other snowflakes, they can stop traffic! Like snowflakes, we can make a big difference if we work together, each one of us doing our small part. 

Did you know that when we work together here on Earth, we’re actually practicing for eternity? In heaven, we will all have to work, but each of us will have just a small piece of work, so we’ll never get overloaded or tired. No one will carry a heavy burden as each one of us does our small part. All the work will still get done.

We need to remember that as we walk through life that we’re not supposed to do everything on our own. We need other people to walk with us, but we also need people to work alongside us. As we share the burden of our work with fellow Christians, we’ll find that we actually accomplish more for the glory of God.
