Teamwork

Please head over to Spiritual Sundays and soak yourself up with encouraging posts. Thank you sisters Charlotte and Ginger for hosting.


“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 [ESV]


It was chaotic last night. There were many unscheduled sick calls my co-workers and I saw. There were man downs. As piles of charts with doctor’s orders were waiting to be entered in the computer. The Intake Nurse called “SOS!” So, after my break, I went there to help her out.

But out of all that craziness, it was still manageable. Because every one was willing to put their best to accomplish the tasks that we needed to do. It might be a chaotic night. But with a great teamwork, it did not seem it was.

With teamwork, the inefficiency becomes efficient. There is harmony. There is focus. There is one vision. There is willingness to do a sacrifice. All toward achieving one mission. That’s how it must be in our Christian walk.

I just wanted to share this neat video. Because of hard work and teamwork, these people did a beautiful thing together:


“For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:13 [ESV]

  2. I want you to know, unless I goofed up, that your link on this week's Spiritual Sunday post took me to last weeks. So, if you don't get many comments here.. that might be why. I am a strong believer in team work. God did not design us to be solitary people. I find when everyone can cooperate, do their share of the work, it goes easier. But, unfortunately so people don't do their share! When this happens, such as in the work place, we just have to be an example.
    Thanks for sharing your insight on this, and the video was a hoot!

  16. Team work is so important in all aspects of our life. To many people try to go it alone and fail. We all need each other..it is part of gods plan. You have written about it so well in today's post.

  17. What an awesome video on working together. I'm glad you have a team at work that you trust. That is such a blessing! However, the key to to submit to the effort, to become self-less to support the goal of the team. How much better would our days go if we self-lessly committed ourselves to God's team! Be blessed friend!

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
